Brevard Elementary

I was born and raised in Brevard, this little town is full of familiar faces. I went to Pisgah Forest and stayed in Transylvania County until we moved while I was in high school. I graduated from North Henderson and came back to Brevard to attend Brevard College. I completed my student teaching, and absolutely fell in love with the little ones. It was after working a little bit in all grade levels that I decided on Pre-K.

My two little ones were probably the biggest influence on my passion for that age level. I have two boys, ages 6 and 3. They keep me on my toes! My husband is from Hendersonville. We met in the middle and made Etowah our home about eight years ago. We love being outside and exploring everywhere. We currently don't have any pets, but my children have asked for a dog every day for a couple months, so that is in our near future.

Favorite foods: anything my nana makes, of course, but we also enjoy Chick-fil-A, Olive Garden and Mayberry's in town. We love to grill out and make picnics any chance we get. I love comedy movies and have become quite fond of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" – thanks to my boys! My favorite colors are green, purple and

yellow. My favorite children's books are "I Wanna Iguana" and "The Tickle Monster."

I grew up playing softball and that is something I plan to become involved in for the future! I love creating hands-on learning opportunities. We are yearly members of The Knoxville Zoo, and we love taking weekend

getaways to visit all our friends if the zoo. My kids favorite activity is gem mining. Next year we plan to take them to Thermal City Gold Mine where they can dig for hours! My children have played the biggest role in my love of children. I always think about those that make a difference to them and believe in giving every child all the love they deserve. I credit everything I have learned to the amazing teachers I have had in my life.
