I grew up in Jacksonville and attended Northwoods Elementary, Northwoods Park Middle School and Jacksonville High School.  After graduating from ECU in December of 2006 I returned to Jacksonville and started my teaching career at Trexler Middle School.  At TMS I worked as a Health and PE Teacher, was the Athletic Director and coached several sports.

After the arrival of my son Caston, I decided that I needed to focus more on family and work closer to home so I transferred to Northwoods Elementary School.  I love the year round schedule at NWE and have enjoyed getting to know my students and families here. Our family is expanding once again! We are welcoming a baby girl in late November!

Teaching Physical Education is something I have always wanted to do.  I love that I get to teach students about being healthy while playing games.  The goal for my students is that they leave my class having been as active as possible and having learned something new about how their bodies work or about another health topic.  I enjoy incorporating technology in my class and other subjects the students study in school.
