Welcome to 5th grade at UA! I have been teaching for 14 years; this is my second year at UA. I earned my BS in English with a minor in communications and my Masters in the Art of Teaching from the great Wingate University! Go, Bulldogs!! My husband and I have 5 kiddos that keep us on our toes! There is never a dull moment in our home. We enjoy being involved in our kids' activities and also enjoy nature (fishing, hiking, kayaking, & traveling to the beach and mountains). I look forward to this year and learning alongside your child.
