Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Seventh Grade English/Language Arts and Social Studies!
This is going to be an amazing year of growth for you. We will be working hard on understanding what we are reading, increasing our vocabulary and annotating the text. Students should be prepared to come to class ready to learn and have fun.
A little about me:
I have a wonderful husband, Mark, two amazing boys, Sam and Ty, and a third "son" Pierre who lived with us as a foreign exchange student for a year who is now back in France. We have a mighty 12-pound dog called Zeus Maximus and a new puppy named Jupiter.
EDUCATION: I graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a Master’s degree in Middle Grades Education. I received my BA in History and Spanish from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1995. In the summer of 2018, I received my certification in Gifted Education.
WORK EXPERIENCE: I have taught previously at Graham Middle School (6th and 8th), Eastlawn Elementary (4th) and Andrews Elementary (1st). Immediately before teaching, I was a stay-at-home mom for seven years. I’ve also been a web developer, an executive assistant, and a departmental assistant.
TRAVEL: I have traveled to Guatemala, Mexico, Japan, England, France, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Honduras, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, Australia, New Zealand, and Belize. (I LOVE to travel!)
PHILOSOPHY: All students can learn and succeed.
