About Me

I teach 2nd grade at INVEST COLLEGIATE Imagine School. I was born in Florida and moved to Hendersonville, NC for middle and high school. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at Toccoa Falls College in Northeast Georgia and recently finished my Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction with a Gifted/Talented focus at Regent University. 2017-2018 will be my fourth year teaching.  I have experience working in public schools, after school programs, summer programs and in settings with high needs students. My hobbies include reading, seeing movies and live music, and cooking. I joined the INVEST COLLEGIATE team because of the commitment to differentiation and teaching the whole student.
