Hello, students and parents! I am so excited about the 2017-18 school year with you. I am new to West Lake this year but not new to teaching. I spent the last 6 years at Holly Ridge Elementary teaching 5th grade and the 3 years before that teaching 6th grade in Williamsburg, VA. I am looking forward to working with the awesome students and staff at West Lake!
I have lived in Holly Springs since 2011, and I love being a part of our community. If you see me out and about, do not try and hide, I will find you and say hello! I have two boys (Ben, who is in 11th grade at Holly Springs HS, and Andrew, who is in 9th grade at Southern Wake Academy). Before we moved to VA we lived in Pittsburgh, PA (you will find that I am a huge Steelers fan, and how about that Stanley Cup this year?!)
I love to tell stories - you will hear a lot this year about my kids, my dog (Cha Cha) and all kinds of things that have happened over the years. I believe that stories are the number one way we learn and I can't wait to hear yours as well!
