Currently, I have completed nine years of teaching, all of which I have taught at Northeast Elementary. I attended East Carolina University where I obtained a Bachelor's of Science in Communications, as well as received my certification in Elementary Education. As of November 2010, I became a recipient of National Board Certification. I entered the teaching profession because I am passionate about children. It is my goal to grow students academically as well as behaviorally and socially. It is also my belief that the responsibility of educating students lies not only with me, but with parents, students, and the school community. My intention is to create a classroom environment and build relationships where this is possible!
