"Why fit in when you were born to stand out?" -Dr. Seuss
I am a 2011 graduate of Western Carolina University. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. This is my eighth year teaching and I am loving every minute of it. I spent six years in 1st grade and this is my second year in 4th grade. It is my third year teaching at East Elementary and I absolutely love this amazing school! I am originally from Asheville, North Carolina, where the mountains are close to my heart. I am married and have a 4 year old son, a newborn daughter, and 2 huskies. I love to read, go camping, swim, hike, fish, and spend time with my family. Teaching is my calling and I can't wait to see what each year brings.
