Welcome to Kindergarten!

I am excited for a great year as a Kindergarten teacher at Petersburg. I graduated from Appalachian State University in May of 2014 with a degree in Child Development: Birth through Kindergarten. I’m happy to have Ms. Leach working alongside me this year! This is my sixth year teaching. I have taught Pre-K this previous school year, Kindergarten for 3 years, and 2nd grade my first year of teaching.

A little bit about myself; I was born and raised in Union County so I’m a North Carolina girl. I attended Unionville Elementary School, Piedmont Middle, and graduated from Piedmont High School. I got married four years ago on July 18th, 2015. So my family consists of my husband, myself, and our puppy, Gunner. However, my Mom lives in Monroe as well. My younger brother is spending most of his time out west. My favorite colors are purple and pink. I enjoy vacationing to the mountains along with the beach. I really cherish the quality times that I get to spend with my family and friends. For two summers I have worked in a daycare, Childcare Network, and during another summer I was a nanny for two different families. I had a seven year old, five and a half, four, and one and a half year old. I have had the privilege to work with an age range of children from the youngest being 7 weeks old to the oldest being 12 years. I have volunteered with the church nursery, children’s church, Vacation Bible School, and babysat for multiple families in the years past.

I believe that all children are unique. The more I learn about their development the more it amazes me. They have so much potential and can make great future citizens in our society. Thanks for welcoming me as your child’s teacher. I’m excited to travel over the state boarder a little ways to teach your children during my first year at Petersburg Primary School.


I look forward to getting to know each and every one of your children on a personal level, spending many hours of interaction with them, and teaching them.
