I am a proud graduate of Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and Certification in Early Childhood Education. I taught both kindergarten and first grade in New Smyrna Beach, FLorida until moving to Union County with my husband and two sons. I then taught kindergarten at Sardis Elementary and with great excitement moved to Poplin Elementary when it opened.I have been teaching kindergarten at Poplin since then.
I love teaching. It is my job and passion to lay the foundation for my students to become lifelong learners, but it is important to me to make sure that every student that I have contact with feels accepted, loved and valued as a member of my classroom family. When my students feel self worth in our classroom family then they in turn will be risk takers and active participants in their learning and the learning of their peers. I will always do my best to meet every child's needs as I support them in their journey to graduate.
I love the outdoors and my family and I love hiking, sports, and are HUGE FLORIDA GATOR FANS!
