5th Grade Teacher
Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Radford University, Radford, VA
Radford Education Association President
I committed to graduate from Fort Chiswell High School in 1997. Then I committed to graduate from Radford University and earned my degree in Elementary Education. This is my 17th full year teaching in Radford City Schools, and I have loved every minutes of it. I often think back to my elementary education experience. There were many great things going on and my teachers inspired me to want to help others. Another inspiration is my supportive family. My mother was a teacher and a principal. I went with her to help in her classroom as a young girl. I knew from a very young age that teaching was the job for me. I love working with children! I want all students in my class to feel comfortable and successful.
This is going to be a GREAT year. Welcome to the Z TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). We will work as a team this year. I believe in a family spirit. We can all help each other and become better learners this way.
