This is my 4th year at NCCAE and I am so honored to represent our staff as the Teacher of the Year! First grade is the only grade that I have taught here but I previously taught kindergarten in Georgia and 5th and 1st grades while living in Lexington, South Carolina.
I graduated in 2014 from the University of North Georgia with a degree in Education with Reading and ESOL endorsements. I also earned a Gifted and Talented endorsement from Converse College in 2018.
Before college I spent 4 years touring the world with a performance company called the Young Americans. I taught singing, dancing and acting classes to students from kindergarten to college during my 2 years through Europe and 2 tours through the United States. I love singing and playing the guitar in my classroom.
I live in North Charleston which gives me the opportunity to see my students perform outside of the classroom in soccer, basketball, plays, and dance recitals!
