I moved to North Carolina from California with my husband and two boys in 2004.  As much as I love my yearly trips to visit family in California, I am always happy to return to the Tar Heel State.  I especially enjoy the hiking and waterways that are found abundantly in our own backyards.  I also like to spend my spare time gardening (I have a second degree in Horticulture), attend my sons’ sporting events and read books in my backyard.

All About Me. I graduated from Francis Marion University in South Carolina, where I am originally from, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I taught in South Carolina for a year before arriving here at Estes Hills Elementary School. I have been a part of what I call “my family” for 9 years. I have worked in grades K, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. So, I believe I am well rounded! I have a 6 year old daughter who attends Estes Hills and a future Estes Eagle, my 4 year old son.  I love to read and go shopping. We love to play outside, travel and just spend time together as a family.

I have made Estes Hills my home for the past 19 years.  While at Estes I have enjoyed teaching 2nd , 3rd and 4th grades; each one has been my “favorite.”  I have had the pleasure of watching my entire family learn and grow on this campus.  Each nook and cranny of this old school holds fond memories that I will cherish for a lifetime.

I moved to Chapel Hill from Elizabeth City, N.C. to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I graduated with a degree in Psychology and later attended Elizabeth City State University to pursue a degree in Elementary Education.  I am certified in both early childhood (ages 3-8) and middle childhood (ages 7-12), and I am a National Board Certified teacher.

While attending UNC, I met my husband and we have lived here ever since.  We have two children, our daughter who is a 7th grader at Phillips Middle School and our son who is a freshman at East Chapel Hill High.  We have made both Chapel Hill and Estes Hills our home and are so happy for it!

I look forward to another exciting school year with your children.  It’s going to be a great year!
