I am excited about teaching a new group of first graders this year. In my past eleven years at Westwood, I have taught 1st grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade. I have my master's in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University. I have one son, Drake, and one daughter, Caragan. I love my job and look forward to a new year, with new changes, new challenges, and new smiles from my students! Westwood is a wonderful place to be!
