Hello Families and Students!

   I am so excited to be joining the Jacksonville Commons Middle School staff for the 2017-2018 school year.  I am a Jacksonville area native; graduate of Richlands High though I spent most of my schooling on Camp Lejeune.  From there I went to Mount Olive College (now all grown up and known as University of Mount Olive) where I played soccer. After 2 and a half amazing years at MOC I transferred to Montclair State University  in New Jersey where I earned my BA in Family and Child Studies with a concentration in Early Elementary Education.  I am currently pursuing my MEd in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)- Only 4 classes left!).  I am certified in teaching k-6 education in both NJ and NC and have an additional Middle Grades Mathematics Certification for NC.  I hope that by learning about my education background you will feel confident that your child is in qualified hands!



I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grade (math and science) before this assignment.  As the years I have been teaching increase, so does the number of tools in my teaching toolbox. I'm excited to fuse my content knowledge and my teaching experience together to maximize success in our sixth grade math class!


Feel free to browse the other tabs to learn more about my teaching experience and the education that paved my way.  Outside of our classroom there's more to me than just math! Here are a few highlights:

I have two kiddos: Gabriella (8) and Austin (5).  Gabby will be in 3rd grade this year and Austin will be a Kinder! :) You will hear lots of stories about them- Gabbylicious and Austin Texas

I also have two furbabies: Nike and Athena are both German Shepherds.

I am the middle of two sisters. 

I grew up here in Jacksonville! I went to K-10 on Camp Lejeune as a Devil Pup and graduated a Wild Cat in 2003.

I played soccer all through school up through 2 1/2 years in college!

We have lived in New Jersey for the last 11 years! We moved back in July this year and we are SO excited! 

I am a fitness junkie gearing up for my 2nd marathon in October of this year! :) Dark Chocolate, Boom Chicka Pop and Unicorns are a few of my most favorite things. 


I would love to know more about you, too! Please share with me!
