Hello! I am so excited for this school year.
I grew up in Jamestown, New York. I attended Indiana Wesleyan University and earned a bachelor’s degree. After graduation, I taught kindergarten for 9 years in Indianapolis, Indiana. While teaching, I gained a a master’s degree from Ball State University. In 2013 my husband and I moved to North Carolina. I have been teaching first grade at PCCS since 2013 and I absolutely love it!
My husband and I have a dog named Tatonka. He is lively and full of energy so we spend a lot of time playing outside and going for walks! I enjoy being outdoors, as well as crafting, reading and spending time with family and friends.
