Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Owls! I am so excited to join the Oakhurst family for my 23rd year in education! I previously taught 4th grade in New York State, then relocated to Georgia and taught 4th, 2nd, Reading Recovery, and Early Intervention in Gwinnett County Public Schools. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education/ Special Education from SUNY Geneseo, NY., my Master's degree in Reading and Literacy from Walden University, and my Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln University, TN. I've been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 21 years. We have 5 brilliant babies: two creative college boys, one determined high school daughter, and two friendly fur babies! I enjoy reading, spending time with family, and relaxing on the beach!
