I am pleased to have the privilege of being your child's teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my 22nd year at Sedge Garden. Prior to moving to second grade, I taught kindergarten for 4 years and first grade for 17 years. I am a North Carolina Teaching Fellow and I received my bachelor degree in Elementary Education from UNC-Greensboro. I love teaching and I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. One person that greatly inspired me was my grandmother, who taught in a one room school in West Virginia. In my spare time, I enjoy sewing and spending time with my family. I love the mountains and I spend many weekends on our family farm in West Virginia.
