    I am so excited to be your teacher this year! This is my second year at Daves Creek. I earned both my Bachelor and Masters degrees in Early Childhood Education at the University of Georgia. I also hold both Gifted Education and Reading Endorsements. I passionately pursue my goal of instilling a love for learning in children as well as challenging them to be their personal best. I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year and to meeting all of my new first graders!

    I am very excited to join the first grade team at Daves Creek! My eldest daughter is going to be a sophomore in high school and my middle son is going to be a 7th grader. I find it difficult to believe that my youngest son is going to be a 5th grader in elementary school! I graduated with my Master's degree in elementary education from San Jose State University in California. While in California, I was a kindergarten, first and second grade teacher. My husband and I moved to Georgia in 2016 to be closer to my mom and sister. We love it here and look forward to learning more about this wonderful state!
