Welcome to 5th Grade! I am so excited to be living and teaching in the Hillsboro community. I grew up in Hillsboro and graduated from HHS in 2006. I played soccer and cheered throughout highschool, but my true passion was always school and learning.
I attended Greenville College and majored in English and Spanish. I graduated in 2009 and married my highschool sweetheart, Devin. After graduation we decided to make a big move across the country to Denver, Colorado.
In Denver I obtained my teaching license through The New Teacher Project and Metropolitan State University of Denver. I taught 3rd and 4th grade for 5 years in Denver at Columbian Elementary School.
In 2016, my husband and I adopted our foster son and made the decision to move back to Hillsboro to raise him near family in the town we both grew up in. I am so excited to be back in this area and love teaching the kids at Coffeen School!
When I am not teaching, I am currently renovating a building uptown in Hillsboro. Our big dream is to eventually live upstairs and my husband will have a music studio downstairs. I love taking nice long walks with my son Andre and our 2 dogs, Bert Macklin and Crosby.
