She then attended Longwood University, in Farmville, Virginia where she earned her B.S. in Early Childhood Education. She has always enjoyed working with children, and is happy to be teaching Kindergarten because they are eager to learn.

She can’t wait to work together as a team and make this year full of fun and learning!
