Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am so excited to be starting my 12th year as an Oakhurst Owl! I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten at “the best little school in the world”! I was born at Northside Hospital, right here in Atlanta and raised in Snellville, GA. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and ESOL from Georgia State University and even did my student teaching at Oakhurst! I spent some time teaching English in The Netherlands and then came back to Oakhurst to teach Kindergarten after a short stint as a paraprofessional. While teaching Kindergarten, I earned my Master’s degree from Piedmont College. I have 2 cats, Mayhem and Gus Gus who believe it is their job to sit on my keyboard while I work. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy watching Chicago sports, traveling, shopping, trying to keep my house plants alive, sewing, volunteering with cat rescue organizations and with an organization that supports refugee families in the Clarkston area.
