Welcome to first grade! I am delighted to be your child's teacher for the 2018-2019 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 19th year teaching. I have two very active children, Hunter, 16 and Molly Grace, 12. We make our home in Cliffside. 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!
