Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised here in Virginia, in beautiful Pittsylvania County. I am a self-contained special educator at Park Avenue for students in kindergarten through 1st grade. This is my third year with this school as I was previously employed at the Hughes Center. I have graduated through Liberty University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Special Education.
I was brought into the education world after I had my first daughter and I loved watching her grow and learn. My experience of becoming a mother really taught me that I wanted to become a teacher so that I could help other children learn and see the joy in them during their learning.
A little about my life outside of school: I have three biological children and three bonus children with my husband. We have one pet at home, a dog named Bluey. As a family, we love to go camping as a family, often at the beach.
