I am a graduate of Longwood University, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Teaching. I now am licensed to teach K-6, but have chosen to pursue a graduate degree in Reading, Literacy, and Learning prior to working full-time in the classroom so I can better support students as they learn to read. In my time learning how to be an educator, I've had opportunities to work with students in second, third, fourth, and fifth grade. I also taught at a summer camp both online and in-person, working with students from 2nd-8th grade. Each of these different experiences has allowed me to develop my skills and strengthen my love for teaching. I believe that an effective education is one that makes students better learners and people, equipping them with the ability to think critically and interact with the world around them. When teaching, I strive to create lessons that are connected to the real world, foster creativity, and allow us to have fun while learning! I have come to love teaching every subject under the elementary school general education umbrella, and cannot wait to teach them full-time. I am grateful that this opportunity allows me to continue teaching and working with students.

I love to design & cut stickers with my Cricut, play with my dogs, work out, and go on adventures! I also love settling in on the couch to read a good book or watch my favorite TV shows!
