Hello kindergarten families! 2018-19 will be my third year teaching kindergarten at Estes Hills, and I love my job! I grew up at the beach, and the beach remains my favorite place on earth. I studied Early Childhood Special Education at UNC-Chapel Hill, and have taught preschool, elementary French, and kindergarten. I have two high school-aged children and two cats. I enjoy inspiring kindergarteners to learn by providing a safe, inviting space with materials and structures that facilitate play, encourage social interaction, and promote discovery. I'm looking forward to a great school year!
Hello! I am so excited to join the Estes Hills community this year. I grew up in Northern Virginia, but have lived in NC since 1996. I earned my Early Childhood Associate from Alamance Community College, and I am currently enrolled in UNCG's B-K Teacher Education program. Prior to joining Estes, I taught in a Reggio inspired preschool for eight years. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to help enrich the lives of our youth and find it keeps me positive, creative, curious, and kind. I live in Saxapahaw with my husband, daughter, and our cat Thomas. In our spare time, we enjoy day trips to the beach, camping with friends, and working on projects around the house.
