I am so excited to be teaching here at Black Mountain Primary! I began my teaching career here in October of 2007. I am a native of Black Mountain, and love the Blue Ridge Mountains.
In elementary school my family moved across country to Colorado, which inspired my love of traveling. I have been to many of the United States and even two Australian states!
I have a wonderful family. My husband and I met in high school and have been married since 2004. Together we have a handsome little boy named Jaden,  a mischievous puppy named Chewy, and two rabbits named Snow Drop and Patch.
I am very interested in photography and art, as well as flower gardens, and writing. One day I hope to illustrate and write my very own children's books, which of course will be inspired by my wonderful students!
There was a time that I attended Black Mountain Primary myself, but in my higher education pursuit I attended High Point University and Montreat College. Where I  graduated with honors, to receive a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. In the future, I plan on pursuing a Master's Degree and a National Boards Certification. I love to wrtie!
our school is A plus I love that we are an A+ school!! This is a way of using the arts to teach the core curriculum as well as a way to engage ALL learners and build on their natural strengths while enhancing their perceived weaknesses.
I hope to travel the world.
My favorite author is Mercer Mayer.
