Welcome to my Classroom
My Classroom Mission
I will challenge all students to be at or above grade level in Reading and Writing. I will achieve this with the support of the staff, the principal, students, and parents.
I grew up in Statesville and went on to receive a degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. After working for the Employment Security Commission for eight years, I chose to become a Teacher Assistant. It was during that time at Cool Spring Elementary that I decided I wanted to teach and attended Lenoir-Rhyne College to earn my teacher's license. I am now in my sixth year of teaching at East. My husband Chris and I have been married for 20 years and have two children, Elizabeth and Thomas, and a dog named Bella.
