I am so excited to be returning to the SME family this year for my 5th year teaching. This year is super exciting because I am starting a new journey in kindergarten! I am excited to be joining the kindergarten team this year after four years teaching second grade. I graduated from Elon University in May 2013 with dual licensure in Elementary Education and Special Education. I was incredibly lucky to student teach at SME during my time at Elon and then continue my teaching career here as a second grade teacher. I grew up in New Jersey, but after attending school in North Carolina and working at SME, I knew I found a new home. I live in Durham and enjoy spending time with friends, reading, gardening, and going for walks with my dog. I recently got engaged and I am planning a wedding to marry my best friend in October 2018. I am eager to get started on a another journey with my kindergarten class this year! Come join us in The Circus for lots of love, laughter, and learning with "The Greatest Class on Earth"!
