I am excited to be joining the Mariner Family and the third grade team this year. This will be my 18th year of teaching, and 16th year in Forsyth County. My husband and I have two children, Joshua and Daniel, who keep us quite busy on the baseball field. When I am not teaching or cheering on my favorite players, I am enjoying a good book in my reading room. I love building and strengthening the joy of math, problem solving, and reading in my students and can't wait to begin this year's learning adventure with them.

I am so excited to be a Mariner! This will be year 35 for me and I love teaching! Originally from the Finger Lakes region of New York, I earned my bachelors and masters degrees from SUNY Brockport. My doctoral study focused on looping and student connectedness. I have taught kindergarten, sixth grade, fourth grade, fifth grade, and graduate students. My passion is in looping with fourth and fifth grade students. In my free time, I love to hang out with my two grandblessings (one will also be a Mariner), ride my motorcycle, and go hiking.
