Hello! I just want to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. I am the STEM Teacher at Pleasant Gardens. I teach all students grades K-5. This is my ninth year teaching at Pleasant Gardens and my second year as the STEM Teacher. I have three children. Two girls and one boy. I was born and raised in Miami, Fl until I moved to Buladean, NC at the age of 15. Talk about a change! I do love the calm and tranquility of living in the mountains.

As an educator I have received my Masters Degree in Elementary Education. I have also received three grants to help fund with technology needs as well as supply needs. I was teacher of the year for Pleasant Gardens 2013-2014 school year.

I am very active throughout the school. I am the lead teacher for our Fifth Grade Muddy Sneakers Expeditions. I run the science club after school on Wednesdays for fifth graders as well. I also coordinate the end of the year trip for our fourth and fifth graders.

You can always contact me at 724-4422 or through email at
