All students will be held to high expectations and encouraged to achieve at their very best academic level. All students will show improvement! In my classroom, all participants will "speak life".
I am a graduate of Mars Hill College, and this will be my 15th year teaching. In the past, I have tutored at Sylvan Learning Center, taught at American Renaissance Charter School, Statesville Middle School, and worked as a reading specialist and classroom teacher in the Iredell-Statesville School System. I have specialized in language arts for more than 10 years and have experience in several different grade levels. This is my fourth year at NB Mills, and I am excited about team teaching again where I teach ELA and Social Studies. All 5th grade students will change classes 4 times per day and have a different teacher for science, math and reading.
I am married and have three adult sons. My boys go to UNC-Wilmington and the Univeristy of Alabma. My oldest son has been in the working world for 3 years now. I also have a big, silly dog named Simba. I love going to ballgames, seeing my former students, going to movies, reading and rock painting. I live in Statesville and enjoy being an active part of our community. I am also a Sunday School teacher for grades 1st-3rd.
Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from both students and parents. This year, I will be using class dojo and remind as additional ways to be in contact with parents.
I'm also a proud member of the Giver Team as part of the Houses of NB Mills.
