Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! I am so excited to be joining you at R. Brown McAllister this year! I just moved from Rhode Island and I am currently living in Charlotte. I attended college at the University of Rhode Island where I earned two degrees in Elementary Education and Human Development and Family studies, all while working as a campus tour guide. Although I loved living by the beach in New England, I am so excited for a new adventure here in North Carolina!
Back in Rhode Island, I taught 4th grade and developed a strong teaching philosophy. I believe that all students deserve to learn in an environment that provides equal opportunities for success. Although our 2020/21 school year will look different than years in the past, my goal as an educator remains the same; to create a classroom community where students not only learn, but feel safe, respected, and valued for who they are as individuals.
When I'm not in the classroom (or on the computer) teaching, you can find me in the kitchen cooking new recipes, adventuring outdoors, or exploring the streets of my new home in North Carolina! I look forward to taking on this school year together!
