Hello and welcome to our class!! I am so excited to be teaching at Rose Hill Magnolia this year and look forward to learning about all your children. I look forward to working closely with you to ensure your children become independent, successful individuals.

I am a graduate of UNC-Wilmington. I also have a Master's in Special Education from Grand Canyon University and an Advanced Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Capella University. I have been teaching for 17 years at all levels from Kindergarten through High School. I have taught resource, behavior and adaptive classes so I am prepared to face any challenges that come my way. 

I have two children. Riley is 25 and a graphic designer living in Raleigh. Christina is 22 at Escoffier to be a chef. I love all animals and presently have 17 dogs , 3 cats, 2 turtles, a hedgehog and 2 goats. I love anything to do with the outdoors and I really want to start a classroom project outside our door. More about that later :)

It is very important that we keep in touch throughout the school year. You can call the school after 3:15 Monday through Friday at 910-289-3667, email me anytime at, or send a note through Claa Dojo. I will be in contact soon regarding your child's IEP.
