At Freedom Elementary, we believe that every child has the potential to grow academically and socially.  My goal as an educator is to provide a safe, caring, and supportive environment so that each student can reach that potential.  Every student in my classroom will know they are loved and valued, and each child will have ownership in the learning process.  I am excited to work with your family and be a part of your child’s education. We are a team!

This is my 20th year in education and my 3rd year as a 2nd grade teacher.  Previously, I taught K-5 music (Partridge and East), 9-12 band/choir (Waynesville High School), and first grade (East and Freedom).  All of my teaching experience has been with the Waynesville R-VI School District.
