My Teaching Journey...
I began teaching in High Point, NC at a public Montessori school, Triangle Lake Montessori Elementary School.  While there, I educated students in Pre-K/Kindergarten, First Grade and First/Second Grade Combination classes.  I transferred to Davidson County in 2010 and joined the Midway family. I have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching First Grade for the past 6 years at Midway.
