Meet the Teacher
"The miracle is this: The more we share, the more we have." Leonard Nimoy
Fifth grade is an exciting and challenging year. Our class team is
always busy, and you are welcome to drop by and join in. We are glad you
are visiting our class website.
I earned my BS
and MA degrees in education from Western Carolina University, and am a
National Board Certified teacher. I have taught for twenty-three years,
nineteen of those in fifth grade. I have a passion for teaching. I enjoy
helping students understand and enjoy math and science. I try to be a
lifelong learner and my students certainly help in this process. I learn
from them each day.
I have two wonderful,
kind-hearted children. My daughter is a junior in Western Carolina
University's Honors College. She is majoring in Biology and Spanish. My
son is a senior at TC Roberson High School. He will be attending
Western's Honors College next year. My husband is also in education in
the Buncombe County School system. We have a sweet black lab named
Faith, a horse named Truth and a mule, yes a mule, named Skagit.
love looking for unique finds at thrift stores, yard sales and antique
stores. I enjoy searching for projects on Pinterest and then trying them
out. My husband and I are in the process of renovating a little cottage
on some property we bought in Barnardsville, NC. We then plan to build a
small home up above the cottage on the same property. Lots of ways to
use my Pinterest skills!
Your child is important
to me. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Email is the best way to communicate with me, but you can also send
notes or call the school office. I will get back to you within 24
