I am a laid back, down to earth, fun loving teacher. I believe that learning should be fun, so I try to keep my classroom light-hearted and engaging while the students are learning. My passion for everything math and for reading is easy to see once you enter my classroom. This is my second year teaching, with both years being at West Craven Middle. I graduated from East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) in the summer of 2011. Instead of going directly into teaching, I spent the next five years working in agriculture, working closely with farmers in Greene and Lenoir County to figure out what nutrients were in their fields and what (if any) fertilitzers and / or chemicals their crops could benefit from. Eventually I decided it was time to change professions and realized my love for helping people understand new concepts would transition into the classroom. Since joining the family of teachers at West Craven Middle I have enjoyed seeing the success of each student as each day passes. I work hard to help ensure each student has the best opportunity possible for success not just in my classroom, but everywhere. I enjoy working with my students, and fellow teachers, every day, and look forward to another amazing year with the Wildcats family!
