Hey there! I am so excited to teach 5th grade ELA and Reading this year at the Ridge! I love teaching reading and seeing my students find their love of reading as well. I make it my mission to push my students to meet their full potential by the end of the year to prepare them for middle school. Growth is our goal! I am so lucky to be in a team of three this year with John Vincent (Science & Social Studies) & Alisha Shell (Math).

As a Pelham Alum, I am so blessed to be teaching in the same school system that inspired and empowered me to be the teacher I am today. I graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with my Bachelors in Elementary Education with a Graduate Certificate in Teaching Multilingual Learners. Last November my high school sweetheart, Jacob, and I eloped in Maui, HI. Maui holds some of my favorite memories! Right now, we're pretty busy renovating our first home and playing around with our new puppy that we adopted from Shelby Humane; her name is Ro! Some of my hobbies include reading, exploring new types of food/cuisine, and online shopping.
