Welcome to the third grade! I look forward to building a classroom community in which we are respectful of each other and go home each day excited about learning. Teaching is my passion, and I can assure you that I am very excited about the school year.

In May of 2012, I graduated from Appalachian State University with honors and received my Bachelor’s degree in education. I student taught in the third grade at Crossnore Elementary, and after college graduation I continued working within the same classroom as a substitute teacher until the end of the year. I moved to Asheville a year and a half ago to pursue my dream of becoming a full-time teacher. Last school year I worked at Oakley as a part-time Title I teacher and assistant for the 4th and 5th grades for four weeks. I absolutely loved getting to know the students and staff at Oakley. I am happy to be back at this amazing school and I look forward to spending my first year of teaching with your children.

I know that you will support me this year in helping your child meet his/her academic and social goals. I strive to show students how fun and exciting learning can be, while giving them foundations to become more independent. I view our class as a safe and fun community where we are all learning together. I hope that you will stay in touch, and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to our partnership in making this a productive and exciting year for your child.
