As most kids do, I looked up to my teachers growing up.  In fact, I knew from the time I was in elementary school that I wanted to be a teacher myself.

So, when I graduated from East Davidson High School, I pursued a degree from Gardner-Webb University.  There, I majored in Elementary Education and double-minored in Professional Education and Mathematics.  I graduated cum laude with a Bachelors of Science Degree in 2010.

I returned home, where I completed my student teaching requirements at Hasty Elementary, and spent the next 6 years there! I'm now at Brier Creek, teaching 5th grade Math and Science!


One thing I've learned along the way is that learning is a life-long process.  That being said, I'm excited for what the future holds and where my career will take me!
