Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Parkwood Elementary! I have worked in the classroom since 2000. I was a teaching assistant for 3 years before becoming a teacher. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from UNCW. Go Seahawks! I have taught kindergarten, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. This is my twentieth year teaching, and my eighteenth year with Onslow County Schools.
I was born and raised in southern New Jersey, right outside Philadelphia. I came to North Carolina in 1996, and to Jacksonville in 2000. My husband, also a teacher with Onslow County Schools, and I have two daughters. Violet is a ninth grader, and Eve is a fourth grader. We couldn't imagine working and raising a family anywhere else!
