My work with the EC population started while completing my undergraduate degree at UNCW. During this time I worked with UNCW's Adaptive P.E. summer program, and I knew my heart belonged with the SPED population. My education career began in 2018 as a Teacher Assistant at Southwest Middle School for their EC department. I worked with their 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students with a wide range of abilities. I then transferred to TMS to begin my teaching career for the 2019-2020 school year. While at TMS, I had the pleasure of teaching in a self-contained classroom for all core subjects for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.
This will be my first year at SWMS as a teacher and I am so excited to be spending it with you all for the 2021-2022 school year as the Resource Teacher for 8th grade. I will also be the head coach of the SWMS softball team. GO COLTS!
A little about myself: my husband and I are homegrown locals to the area. Our family is made up of a dog named Remington and a cat named Jameson; and we all live in Jacksonville. We enjoy living in North Carolina and particularly love the outdoors. With that being said, I am looking forward to knowing you all, and I hope you are as excited as I am to make this the best school year yet!
