   Hi! Welcome to my first grade classroom.  This is my fourteenth year at Avery's Creek and my twelfth year as a teacher.  This is my fourth year teaching first grade after teaching fourth grade for eight years.  I greatly enjoy teaching and I love being part of our Avery's Creek Elementary family.  This is a diverse and wonderful place to learn.  Being a part of each child's life as they learn and grow is what makes being a teacher such as important and special job.
   I grew up in Buncombe County and graduated from Enka High
 School. I am a graduate of Mars Hill College with a degree in Elementary Education and a K-12 Reading Licensure.  I also have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education.
   I feel that it is important to promote an atmosphere of respect, safety, and trust in my classroom. Therefore, I work hard to build a sense of community among my students, and I emphasize the idea of teamwork. I value cooperation and collaboration among the students in my classroom.  I also believe that great things can happen when we, the teacher, student and parents work together!
