I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year! I have been in the field of education for over 20 years! I am an East Carolina University graduate with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and I have my K-12 Reading Certification as well.
I am a mother of two children. My son, Justin is 24 years old. He graduated this past spring from NC State University (Go Pack). My daughter, Allyson is 19 and is in her 2nd year at UNC Wilmington.
I absolutely LOVE what I do. Teaching is my passion and I cannot express enough just how much I enjoy my time in the classroom. What better job could there be? I get to take part in shaping our future and helping our youth become a successful part of our community. It is my belief that every child can succeed and your child will hear this often!
The students I teach, are not just students to me; I consider them MY KIDS. Their journey, not only in school, but in life are incredibly important to me.. Teaching them what's out there in our world, helping them see all the possibilities, and having them set goals, even at the young age of 6 & 7, helps fosters their creativity and desire to achieve.. This is what's important to me.... I want them to know that they CAN do and be ANYTHING!
For me, knowing that I played a part in each child's life that I have been so fortunate to teach, makes me tremendously proud. It's their journeys along with my own two children's that have helped shape who I am as a person and as a teacher.
My own 2 children are grown, and one day, your baby will be too; crossing that high school stage as the Class of 2029. On that day you will experience an enormous sense of pride at ALL your child has done and accomplished and hopefully, you will remember his/her time at WSES and each teacher that helped encourage your child and foster their beliefs that anything is possible!
So, buckle up and enjoy every moment of this ride! We are going to have a great year as we work together, laugh often, and share in an amazing journey of growth and learning!
