Hello! I'm so happy to be back at Knotts Island Elementary this year, this is my 5th year teaching here. Here is just a little bit about me.
I graduated in 2010 from Elizabeth City State University with an Elementary Education BS concentration in Math. I tutored a few years throughout college and a little after with Sylvan Learning Center. I have been a TA for Pasquotank and Camden county schools in the special education department.
I started my teaching experience in 2013 at The Albemarle School in Elizabeth City, where I taught 3rd - 5th grade reading and 6th - 7th grade math. The following year I was a 6th grade math teacher at Perquimans County Middle School.
My family and I just built a house here on the Island. We love everthing about the island and it's community! I have two kids; Liam is starting kindergarten with Mrs. Olson and Madisyn is starting 3rd grade with Mrs. Gibbs. We just built a chicken coop over the summer and now have 7 hens and 1 rooster! I also have a dog named Dixie and a cat named Yoda. Needless to say, we love animals!
My goal is always to have students excited about learning and always wanting to learn more. This year we will be really focusing on independent reading and building our reading stamina! We will also be incorporating a lot of writing this year. Math will be heavily concentrated on place value with decimals and fractions. Fifth graders take 3 EOG's: Science, Reading, and Math.
I look forward to the amazing 2019-2020 school year!
