Hello and welcome to my website! I am so excited to be teaching Biology at Hobbton, of which I am a proud 2002 alumnus!
I was born and raised here in Sampson County, and after graduating high school, I attended East Carolina University, where I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Services and Information Management, and again in 2009 with a Master of Arts in Teaching. I previously taught high school Biology for three years, but wanted to experience the "elementary world", so I taught 5th grade Math and Science for 4 years at Union Intermediate School. I realized that I was missing older learners as well as the amazing field of Biology, so I decided to continue my studies by taking online classes with Clemson University, where I graduated in May 2018 with a Masters of Biological Sciences. The field of Biology is absolutely incredible to me, and it is my ultimate goal to pass on my passion and enthusiasm for studying all the life around us, to my students.
In my scarce free time, I enjoy fishing, crafting, and cooking. My favorite time of the year is Fall, and part of the reason why is because I am a HUGE football fan! I do not have two-legged kids yet, but I do have two four-legged, furry kiddos, who I love to spoil! Henrie, mama's baby boy, is a Lhasa Apso who has a birthday on December 23, and Mollie, half Beagle/half Shih Tzu, is my baby girl who celebrates her birthday on March 23rd. Henrie is my cuddle-bug, and Mollie is my athletic girl! Her sport of choice is soccer! They both keep me very busy!
If I have your child in my class, please be sure to search for me on Facebook, so I can add you to the appropriate class group. I use Facebook as an extension of my class, so I post relevant news articles related to our studies, as well as important school and class dates. This is a great way for students and parents both, to feel "in the know" about what's going on in class!
