I am excited to be teaching in Oconee County. Since I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher! I truly believe that a classroom needs to be a place where students feel safe to take chances and try new things! Students need to know it is okay to take risks and mistakes can happen, but it is all a part of growing as a learner. I grew up in a small town in New York. I graduated from Niagara University, Niagara New York with a dual in Early Childhood and Special Education, minor in English. I also earned my Masters in Literacy Specialist from NU as well. I have two daughters, Ava and Lily.
