Degrees and Certifications:
I am a Southern Girl born and raised! I spent my childhood and much of my adult years in a little town on the east coast of North Carolina. I graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Special Education and spent a number of years working with children and adults with developmental disabilities. I started teaching at Oakbrook Elementary School in 1998 and I have had the pleasure of teaching gifted learners since 2002. I am excited about teaching 3rd graders again! I enjoy laughing and learning with my students, In addition to the core subjects, I have been instrumental in developing the Performing Arts Club, 5th Grade Math Team, and Robotics Team. I strive to instill a love for learning and creativity in my students while creating a rapport of trust and safety.
