Meet the Teacher
This is my 7th year teaching at Pickett, and my second teaching 4th/5th grade AIG! I taught 5th grade for two years and 3rd grade for three years. I love teaching two grade levels!

I am originally from Virginia and I have always been passionate about learning and teaching.  I used to spend a week of my summer in Montana volunteering on a Native American Reservation working with kids, which really inspired me to teach.

I attended James Madison University in Virginia and studied Elementary Education with a focus on American History.  I graduated in 2010 with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education.  I then attended Florida State University for graduate school. 

In my free time I like to fish, read, hike, run with my dog Charlie, cook/bake, craft, and garden. I love being outside, traveling and watching football (Go Green Bay!). I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
