    x-I was born and raised in Huntersville, North Carolina. I attended Huntersville Elementary, Bradley Middle, and Hopewell High School. After graduating from Hopewell High in 2006, I moved away to attend school at Western Carolina University (Go Catamounts!) in Cullowhee, North Carolina. I loved the mountains, but not being so far from my family, so in the Spring of 2007, I moved back home to attend school at UNC Charlotte. There, I earned my BA in Elementary Education, with a concentration in English and Communications. I completed my student teaching at TCE in Miss McKowan's 5th grade class and began teaching at Torrence Creek the next year. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my new husband and playing with our boxer, Brody. I also nanny at night for two children (Emma, 10 and John, 6). I have been nannying for Emma since she was 1 and John since he was born, so they are basically family now! I enjoy anything outdoors, especially during the Fall. I also love watching and attending football games, especially Auburn and the Panthers!
