I graduated from Kent State University with a Master's in Elementary Education in 1997. I also have a degree in Newspaper Journalism from Kent.


I moved to Archdale, North Carolina in 1997 and began teaching in fifth grade at John Lawrence Elementary. After nearly ten years, I asked to move to third grade where I taught for seven years. For the past six years, I have taught first graders. 

Every grade is my favorite! Every class is unique! And every child is special!


Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my children and time at the beach. You might also catch me working outside at our house or lounging outside with a book.
