Welcome to my Second Grade Classroom
Candler Elementary School
Education & Experience
I have lived in this community most of my life. I graduated from Enka High School and then received a Marketing/Management Bachelor of Science Degree from UNC-Asheville. I worked in the field of marketing and management for a number of years. After my daughters were born I was honored to be a stay at home mom for eleven years. After working in the schools as a volunteer, serving on PTO, and volunteering in the classroom I decided to return to college to get my teaching certificate. During this time I worked as a Title One Assistant for three years and then as a kindergarten assistant both at Sand Hill Venable Elementary School. I graduated from Mars Hill University with a K-6 teaching certificate and a Reading Specialist certificate after doing my student teaching at Avery's Creek Elementary School. I was fortunate to work with the second grade teachers at Avery's Creek in an interim position from January 2014 - June 2014. I have worked with very talented teachers over the years and I am very excited to be a part of the Candler team!
Outside of school I love spending time with my two beautiful daughters, friends, and family. I love to be outside, walking, jogging, planting flowers, or hiking. I love to shop and I love shoes! I like to curl up with a good book or watch a funny movie with friends. My family and I like to vacation at the beach. We love to eat Mexican food! Dancing is one of my favorite activities. I also enjoy spending time with our sweet Golden Retrievers.
