Degrees and Certifications:
Born and raised a Buckeye, I graduated from college in 1992 from Bowling Green State University with a bachelor’s degree in education. Two days after graduating I moved to Southport where my career began.
In addition to teaching first and second grades, I have now been in third grade for five years. This is where my heart is. I love watching third grade boys and girls as they transition from learning to read to reading to learn and embracing the love of reading.
I am a proud mom of a twenty-one year old son, Kyle. He is currently a senior at ECU (GO PIRATES!!) where he will soon graduate from their engineering department with a degree in Industrialized Engineering and Technology.
I also have a beautiful eight year old Golden Retriever named Josea. She is a great listener and would love to be in our classroom with all the boys and girls.
