Hello North Cove family! I am happy to be starting my second year as a teacher and am eagerly awaiting the arrival of students, signaling the kickoff to the new school year. Prior to becoming a teacher at North Cove, I had the fortune of being assigned here for my student teaching through Appalachian State University in Fall 2014 and being an instructional assistant the next semester. One of my goals as an educator is to create an environment in which students feel the confidence and support to take risks academically and socially. With encouragement and positivity, I have seen students accomplish great things and be successful on whatever goals they set. I am excited to see what students can accomplish this year!
