5th Grade Language Arts and Social Studies
I am looking forward to another fantastic year with fifth grade at Brevard Academy!
I have lived in NC, SC, and TN, but as a Transylvania County native, I feel blessed to be settled again in Brevard and to call it home. My family and I love living in Western NC, and we enjoy soaking in all the fresh air and eclectic beauty that our mountains so graciously give.
I graduated with honors from USC Upstate with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. While living in Upstate SC, I taught sixth grade English Language Arts and was a member of the district's literacy cohort. I also served as part of a collaborative team that developed the language arts and math curriculum guide for the district. In addition to teaching, I have an extensive background in research. I have seen first-hand how a fluency in math, science, language arts, and the social sciences is utilized in the professional STEM fields and how the principles of scientific inquiry can be applied to all areas of learning.
By nurturing self-expression and providing rich and reflective learning experiences, I look forward to guiding my students at Brevard Academy to make connections that extend beyond the classroom.
