I went to school at Eastern Michigan University which is known to be a great school for those seeking a teaching career.  I graduated in 1998.  I also received my Reading Master's Degree there in 2001.


I have taught 5th and 6th Grade Science for a year.  I have taught 8th Grade Math for a year.  I have taught Kindergarten for 4 and a half years and Second Grade for six years (this year being my seventh).


I was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan.  I wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in Second Grade.  Although I preferred elementary, it's very hard to get a job in Michigan.  So I taught 5th/6th Grade Science for a year in Detroit, Michigan.  I also taught 8th Grade Math in Detroit for another year.  I moved to North Carolina in January 2007 and taught Kindergarten for half a year at Southwest Elementary.  Then I taught Second Grade for a year at SWE.  I taught 2nd Grade at Meadow View Elementary School for six years and Kindergarten for 4 years.  I have a boy, Andrew, who is 7 years old and a girl, Elizabeth-5 years old.  I also have three dogs, fish and a turtle!
