- Community Schools
I am so honored to be joining the Hygiene Elementary community this year! As a classroom teacher, I have taught students in grades 1-7th in both rural and urban schools as well as time spent in pastoral schools in East Africa. In addition to my classroom teaching, I am also very passionate about working to improve public education, and have spent the last five years involved with projects at the state and national level with various educational organizations that promote higher standards for students as well as equity in education. I have a BA in History, an MAEd in Elementary Education and additional credentials in Leadership and Policy Studies from UNC. In my free time, I love adventuring with my husband Mark and our two fur-babies, Cooley and Olive.
