Welcome to First Grade!

Hello and Welcome! I am so excited for our year together to begin! This is my 6th year teaching first grade here at Newport Grammar School. I received my Bachelor's degree from Frostburg State University in early and elementary education. I receieved my Master's degree as a reading specialist from Carson Newman University. My love for learning has only grown over the years and my hope is to share that and create a classroom of encouraged curious minds to make this world a better place.
