Welcome to the 2010-21 school year at The Onslow Virtual School! I am one of the 7th grade Math teachers.

Here is a little bit about me:

I absolutely ADORE Math. STEM runs in my family, so I've always been surrounded and inspired by women in STEM. I have multiple aunt's who are Engineers, cousin's who are Math Teachers and Actuaries, and some family members in the medical field.

One of my favorite things about teaching math is listening to students talk and discuss Math, whether it's with their classmates, with me in a whole-class discussion, or thinking out-loud to themselves. One things all students should know about me as a teacher is I love to constantly ask "Why?" I want to know what your thinking and what's your reasoning behind your answer and/or solution path so I can get a glimpse into how your mind works!

I am recently married to my wonderful husband Zack, who has been stationed here in Onslow County with the Marine Corps. I just joined him this summer, so I am a brand new NC Resident! Both my husband and I were born and raised in South Florida, graduated from FSU (Go Noles!), and are beach lovers to our core.


This year may be different, but we get the opportunity to be a part of something new and exciting! I look forward to going through this learning experience together!
