Welcome to 5th Grade!
I am so excited to begin my 9th year teaching at Silver Valley!   I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in History from Catawba College. I am certified to teach K - 12 Social Studies. I earned my Elementary Education Certification from UNCC and my AIG (Academically/Intellectually Gifted) Certification from High Point University. I began my career as a teacher assistant at Southwood Elementary before coming to Silver Valley.
This year promises to be filled with fun adventures and lots of unique educational opportunities.

Please call the school at 336-472-1576 or email me if you have a concern, need to ask a question, or would like to set up a conference.
I am available for conferences with either before or after school appointments. Together, we can discuss ways to help your child be successful in school and for the future!
