    Hello KIES! I am so excited to be here teaching the 5th grade:)

    I grew up in Virginia Beach and have lived in the area my entire life. I have been married for over 20 years and have an amazing daughter who attends Hickory High School. 

    I have received degrees from East Carolina University and Old Dominion University. I worked as a nurse for Sentara and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center for many years, for Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation as a Swimming/Diving Instructor, and as a teacher for the last several years! I have taught 2nd grade-5th grade for NPS, VBCPS, and now Currituck. 

    When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets (1 dog, 4 cats, 1 chicken, 1 horse, 2 geese), fishing, riding horses, and spending time outside doing various activities. 

    I enjoyed my time learning and hope to pass along the joy of learning to my students. My goal is to help your child become a learner who is organized, goal-oriented, friendly, and well prepared for what ever they may want to as they get older. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the school year. I look forward to an amazing fifth grade year!
