Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! I am thrilled to be your reading, writing, and social studies teacher. This is my seventh year teaching upper grades at Coltrane-Webb STEM. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as a NC Teaching Fellow. I am currently a 49er once again, pursuing my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Teaching English as a Second Language.
I was born and raised in the Charlotte area. I now live in Concord with my husband Nicholas, our three-year-old daughter Amelia, dog Ryder, and cat Lucy. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and taking walks at our local parks. I am an avid reader, and enjoy sharing my love of books with my students.
My job is to not only prepare your child for future endeavors, but to communicate with you about your child's needs. It is so important that we work together to make this year a success. Please feel free to message me on Class Dojo or email if you have any questions, concerns, or comments. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
