Welcome parents! I am so glad to be your child's teacher this year. I have been teaching for 16 years in Union County and have been at Union Academy since 2017. I've taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grade. I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Wingate University and my undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
My son Bryse is a high schooler at UA. He and I have two big crazy dogs that keep us busy. We love exploring the wonderful state of North Carolina going to historic sites, museums, gardens, and other interesting places.
I am a Master Gardener, so I spend a lot of time working in my gardens. I love flowers and growing my own food. I'm also a NC certified Environmental Educator, so we'll be spending time outdoors often and I'll be sure to integrate nature topics whenever possible. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, and watching movies. I love historical fiction and books/film with deep plots that make your soul smile.
