Welcome to my Classroom!
I was born in Hillsborough, NC. I lived there my whole life until I moved to Asheville to go to college at UNC Asheville. As a NC Teaching Fellow at UNCA, I had a lot of great experiences touring amazing schools across the country. I graduated from UNCA with a degree in Sociology and a license to teach K-6. This is my sixth year teaching fifth grade. It's by far the best grade to teach!
Some Interesting Facts About Me:
~I have a twin sister. No, we don't look alike; she's five inches shorter than me!
~I enjoy reading, running, swimming, hiking, watching movies, and hanging out with my friends. I also love working out at my Crossfit gym!
~I have traveled to twenty different countries around the world. A few of my favorites include Malawi, Italy and Bonaire.
~I am PADI Scuba certified. I love the world under the ocean. I've been swimming with dolphins, sharks, sea turtles, rays, octopuses, sea horses, and much more! What's your favorite sea animal?
~I've had tons of weird pets growing up. LITERALLY hundreds of animals (think parrots, snakes, iguanas...even a miniature alligator! I had an interesting childhood...ask me about it :) )
~I got married this summer at The NC Arboretum and it was the best day of my life!
