Hello! If you are looking at at this webpage, chances are you are in one of my classes this year. I am excited to have you here and I am looking forward to a year of learning! 

I received my master’s degree in teaching from UNCG and my bachelor’s degree in English
from NC State. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Language Arts. This is my fifth year at River Mill Academy and I am so happy to call it my second home! 

My husband and I welcomed our first child this summer! We live in Graham with our daughter Lola and our two cats, Zoey and Pumpkin. When I'm not teaching, I am either curled up in my sunroom watching home décor or crime shows, reading mystery or dystopian novels, or spending time with my family.


Middle school is an exciting time of great personal and academic growth; that means we need to support and encourage each other in every way that we can. In this classroom, we will love each other like family (because we're stuck with each other for the next 180 days, whether you like it or not!).
