I began my student teaching in First grade at Elm City Elementary in 2011. After graduating  I was employed with Nash Rocky Schools as a fourth grade teacher from January 2012 until June 2012. In July 2012 I became employed with Wilson County schools as a Kindergarten Teacher at Winstead Elementary. I also taught first grade for a while before transitioning back to Kindergarten. I taught at Winstead until June 2017. In July of 2017 I transitioned from being a classroom teacher at Winstead to a RITS/literacy teacher at Hearne.  This is my 6th year as a certified teacher. 


I am a native of Spring Hope N.C. I am a wife, mother of two and a grandmother to two beautiful girls, Destiney(8) and Bella (6). I live a fairly simple life. I enjoy spending time with family, going to church and working out. My favorite quote is, No matter the situation or what I'm going through, My life is what? still "BEAUTIFUL"!!!!!!!!!
