Welcome to first grade! I am delighted to be your child's teacher for the 2019-2020 school year! Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy is a great place to be. I attended Chase High School and graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Gardner Webb University. This begins my 20th year teaching. I have two very active teenagers, Hunter, 17 and Molly Grace, 13. We make our home in Bostic. In my spare time I enjoy reading, sports, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. I am so excited about the upcoming school year. Let's make it GREAT!
