In my graduate studies, I concentrated on elementary education because I wanted to pursue a career as a K-5 teacher.

A little more about me...
My husband and I moved to Asheville about six years ago. We loved the area and wanted to establish ourselves here. This is my sixth year being at Leicester Elementary and I'm very happy to be a part of the staff here. Prior to teaching, I have worked with children in many different settings and capacities such as an assistant, tutor and mentor. I began my career student teaching kindergarten in New Jersey. When I moved to this area, I started as a Title I assistant and then covered a short interim in third grade. I taught first grade for one year and third grade for three years. This year, I'm back in first grade and excited about my new group of students! Please browse my pages to get more information about my classroom. I will be updating information frequently so please come back and visit soon!
