My Classroom Mission
The classroom mission statement that my students created for 2012 - 2013 is "We are here to learn and make new friends. We have to follow directions and help each other. We will follow rules, do our homework, and try our best every day."
I grew up on my family's dairy farm in Iredell County and attended Central Elementary, the school where I now teach. After graduating from North Iredell High School, I continued my education as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC where I received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education. I received National Board Certification in 2008.
