Over the last few years I have had the privilege of being involved in the Whitaker community as both an educator and parent. Whitaker is such a special place because of the collaboration between the committed and passionate staff, a supportive parent and local community, and amazing students.
As Instructional Facilitator, my role is to support our phenomenal teachers in meeting the needs of all of our students. Through an engaging and rigorous curriculum and initiatives,our staff meets the needs and supports the growth of each student.
In 2020 I joined the Whitaker staff as the Science Enrichment Specialist and reading Interventionist and then loved teaching 3rd grade during the 21-22 school year. Before returning to Winston-Salem (which is home for me) my family and I lived in Asheville, NC and Alexandria, VA. I have had the pleasure of teaching in many roles over the last 11 years, including 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, and as a Reading Specialist.
My husband, Mark, and I have a daughter, Mary Claire (current Whitaker 2nd grader) and a 3 year old son, Owen. We enjoy spending time outdoors, and cheering on the Demon Deacons.
