Welcome to our Classroom
I am very excited about teaching fourth grade this year! I have taught kindergarten at Troutman Elementary School from 1998 until 2009, then I spent three years as a first grade teacher and the past 4 years teaching 3rd grade here at Troutman. I have enjoyed all the grade levels that I have been in and am looking forward to my 2nd year in 4th!!! I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. I also received my National Board of Teaching Certificate in 2008 and I then renewed in 2017. I found this experience to be very educational and insightful as an educator. I grew up in Troutman and attended South Iredell High School. I currently live in Troutman with my family. My son attended Troutman, Troutman Middle and South Iredell, and my daughter will be in fifth grade here at Troutman this year. This is a great school, supportive staff, and an encouraging learning environment. I care about my students, and watching them learn, grow and become llifelong learners is what keeps me excited about "my job"! I hope your child enjoys expoloring and learning in fourth grade this year as much as I will!
