Kindergarten Teacher
Haw Creek Elementary School

Welcome to Kindergarten!!

I am a Haw Creek native and I attended this school as a child from kindergarten through sixth grade! I have been at Haw Creek since 2013 and words can not express what a joy it has been to be back in this awesome building. It is where my love of school began and it is such an amazing gift to pass that on to future Haw Creek students.
Prior to teaching at Haw Creek I taught in Greensboro, N.C. for 9 years. I am a University of North Carolina at Greensboro graduate and I am also National Board Certified.
During my time in Greensboro I taught first grade for 2 years and then moved to kindergarten. I feel like kindergarten is my home. Being able to spark a love of learning from the very beginning is such a rewarding part of my job. In our classroom your child will grow leaps and bounds. They will laugh, learn, and play. They will develop not only the academic skills they need to have success in kindergarten but the social ones as well.
Aside from being a teacher, I am also a wife and mother. My husband and I have three children. Our two boys are 11 and 8 years old, and our daughter will be 5 in December. They are wild, fearless, loving children and we are so proud to be their parents. When I am not at school my children and I enjoy playing outside, hiking to the parkway, visiting nearby parks, listening to music, and reading. The boys also enjoy building forts out of the couch cushions, running from one end of the house to the other, and doing little boy stunts that make their mother gasp. It's a good time all around!! :)
I am so honored to be working with your child and I look forward to being a partner with you in ensuring your child's success this year. If you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me! I am always willing to assist you or your child in any way I can.
