my name is...
Welcome to our first grade class!
I am so excited to have your child in my class
this year! Students make so much growth in first grade, and it's exciting
to see all those "light bulb moments" when they begin making
connections. We will all be learning and growing together this year, and I
appreciate your support of your child's education.
To let you know a little about me, I grew up in
Greensboro, and later graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in
Journalism and Mass Communication. Over the next five years, I worked in
corporate communications in Charlotte, and later was a reporter, and
then copy editor, at a local newspaper. Even though I enjoyed my time in the
communications field, I felt I wanted to do something more - something that
would really make a difference.
So in 2002, I began working at Forest Park as an
assistant in Kindergarten and later in first grade, as I went back to
school at UNC-Charlotte to earn my graduate teaching certification. I live
in Kannapolis with my "furry children”, Emmet and Gracie, both of which

x 52319, or by sending a note in your child's green folder, if you
ever have any questions or concerns. I believe in open communication
between parents, students, and the teacher, to make this year the
best one possible!

I believe all children can learn and succeed when they are surrounded by sound
instruction delivered in a warm environment by people who care.
