Degrees and Certifications:
I am so happy to be teaching second grade at NES! I have been teaching since 2013 and I enjoy seeing children learn something new and have fun each and every day. I am married and I have two children. We live in the heart of the beautiful downtown Summerville. We enjoy taking bike rides, going to the farmer’s market, and playing at the park together. In my free time, I love to paint and lay in the hammock. I love coffee, Chick Fil A, and TJ-Maxx! It is my goal this year to see every child grow in reading, math, and become more confident in their abilities.
