I graduated from East Carolina University in 2009 with a BS in Elementary Education. I have a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology from East Carolina. I am passionate about using research based instructional practices and making instruction engaging for students.
I began my teaching career with Nash County Public Schools in 2009 as a 5th grade teacher. After six years of teaching in my hometown, I decided to make a move to Carteret County to teach 4th grade. During my Master's degree work, I saw how effective use of technology boosted my students interest and allowed me to differentiate instruction to meet more of my students' needs. I searched for the perfect position for me and landed as a DLTF in Onslow County in January 2021. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the teachers and students of Dixon Elementary.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my dogs, Sandy & Lucy, and visiting friends and family. I enjoy all water activities, reading, exercising, and art. I believe we should live everyday to its fullest and extend grace and kindness in all situations.
