This is my 19th year teaching. I am originally from NY where I taught full time for one year and was a substitute for 2 years. I moved to Fayetteville, NC where I taught 5th grade for a year. After leaving Fayetteville, I moved to Burlington, where I taught at Andrews Elementary School for 12 years, teaching 3rd and 4th grades. This is my third year at South. I taugth 4th grade for one year and this is my second year teaching 2nd grade.
Shortly after moving to Burlington, I met my husband and we have a 6 year-old son and a dog (who doesn't know he is a dog!).
Since having my son, I have truly learned that trusting anyone with your child is one of the hardest things that you will ever do as a parent. Thank you for trusting me with your most valuable possession. I promise to treat your child with dignity and respect. I promise to challenge your child and teach him/her how to solve problems. I promise that everyday your child will learn something new. Some days may be more challenging than others, but we will learn, grow and overcome any challenge that we face. I promise to help your child find the confidence to be a leader in the classroom as well as out of the classroom.
