Hello to all and welcome to third grade! This is my 6th year working for Cartersville City Schools, but my first year as a third grade teacher. I had the wonderful opportunity to begin my career as a special education parapro in a third grade inclusion classroom at CES. Through this experience I discovered my love of teaching and my true passion for education. I had the unique opportunity to work as a parapro while simultaneously completing my degree in education. I was so fortunate to be able to do what I love every day while honing my craft and growing as an educator.
Outside of teaching I am a Cartersville native and proud alumni of Cartersville High School class of 2008. I have many hobbies that tend to be on the creative side such as writing, drawing, painting, crafting, and repurposing furniture. I am an avid reader and strive to instill a love of reading in every one of my students. I also love being outdoors hiking, camping, swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking.
I am so proud to be a Cartersville Hurricane and am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
