Hello!  Hola!  Konnichiwa! Ni Hao! Guten Tag!

I am one of the ESL teachers that are serving Multilingual Learners at Southwest Elementary Global Academy for the 2022-2023 school year.  I am so excited to be teaching your child this year.  We will serve 1st through 5th grade intensive groups five times a week, and 1st through 5th grade moderate level groups are served three times a week. I will also be assisting classroom teachers with their ML students during their small group ELA time. 

I am a Highly Qualified teacher with certifications in K-12 ESL and Middle Grades Mathematics.  I received my Bachelor's degree from Emory University in Psychology and Journalism, a Master's in teaching middle grades' mathematics and K-12 ESL from UNCW, and I also have a Master's in Business from ECU.  This is my 11th year of teaching; I have taught students in pre-k, middle school, high school, technical college, and adults. This is my first year teaching elementary students!

Some information about me--I am originally from Atlanta, GA, but I have moved 12 times.  I met my husband while I was living in Hikari, Japan as an English teacher.   He was in the Marines.  Since then, we have lived in Jacksonville, NC, Denton, TX, Minot, ND, Greenville, SC and now we have been living in Mocksville, NC since 2019. We have three children: Reina is in 8th grade, Caleb is in 6th grade, and Josiah is in 4th grade.  We also have a Pitbull named Nutmeg, a Doberman named Max, and a Manx cat named Whiskers. :)

My hobbies are singing, dancing (Zumba!), reading, woodworking, and other arts and crafts.  I am licensed as a REALTOR in the Triad and Charlotte real estate markets, which I do in the summer and in my spare time during the school year. I also enjoy watching my children play sports and other extracurricular activities.
