|Welcome all 4th grade Virtual Learners! I am so excited to be your teacher this year and to navigate our adventures into online learning. I have experience teaching in a number of elementary grades and settings. I earned my undergraduate degree from Mercer University, my master's degree with a Reading Endorsement from Armstrong State University, my specialist degree in Instructional Technology from Valdosta State University, and my doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Valdosta State University. I moved to Forsyth County just over a year ago after working with the Camden County’s Gifted and Talented program for nearly 15 years. I am married to my college sweetheart and have three wonderful daughters. In my spare time, I enjoy running, listening to podcasts, reading, and spending Saturdays at the soccer field! I can't wait to greet you as a Poole’s Mill Pirate and look forward to a great year!
