My family settled in this area when I was in elementary school.  I grew up locally, and graduated from UNC Wilmington with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 1999.  I was a substitute teacher for two years before joining the Sand Ridge Elementary staff in 2001.  I taught Kindergarten for nine years, second grade for four years, and first grade for three, before returning to kindergarten this year.  I most enjoy working with reading and social studies, as I grew up loving to read, travel and visit museums.  I have traveled both in and out of the country.  These opportunities to travel have allowed me to share experiences from different cultures, and these aid in the teaching of various subjects and topics with global themes.
