  • Thank you so much for visiting my webpage.  I am excited to be teaching at Mountain Brook Elementary.

    I was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania.  My parents, and extended family still live there.  I have one younger brother, who graduated from Penn State University and now resides in Tampa, FL.  I attended Millersville University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 2010 with an elementary education degree.  In Pennsylvania, I worked as a reading coach for students in grades K-2.  In December 2014, I was awarded my Masters Degree in Special Education from Auburn University.  My studies have helped me to better assist students and help them to become better learners.  I am committed to my students and their families.  I want every child to be successful!

    In August 2011, I moved to Birmingham.  Through my aunt, my husband and I met on a mission trip in 2007.  My husband, John, and I were married on July 6, 2013.  John loves working for the United Way of Central Alabama as their Senior Vice President of Resource Development and is a native of Atlanta.  

    We are excited to be members of the Mountain Brook community. We live in Crestline with our son, Jackson and our 2 wonderful rescue dogs Penelope and Pippa. Jackson was born on February 23, 2019. He is a great source of pride and joy in our lives. Penelope and Pippa are awesome big sisters and enjoy all the food Jack has to offer!

    In my free time, I enjoy reading, crafting, enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with my family.  I love to spend time with family and friends, attending Auburn games, Barons and Braves games as well.  I have traveled to some wonderful places and enjoy trying new things.  

    I am so excited to be teaching at MBE and look forward to learning more about each of my students and their families.  I work tirelessly to be sure my students are reaching their full potential and are engaged in their learning.  I believe that all students are leaders and all students have the capacity to do wonderful things.
