My Students

This year is my 23rd year in education. It is a blessing to spend my days at this beautiful community school in the spectacular mountains of western North Carolina. My school is pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, with around 550 students. Many of my students walk or bike to school. Living in a walkable community is so much fun for them!

My students attend an A+ Arts Integration school where the arts are seamlessly infused in teaching and learning.

The community is deeply invested in the education and nurturing of each student.

The average class size is approximately twenty students and we celebrate our multicultural uniqueness and learning diversity. This year, we added several classrooms and have seen a large increase in student enrollment. It makes perfect sense to me as we are the best school!

My Project

Our school has an awesome group of 5th graders that get to be part of Safety Patrol each morning. Some of their duties include helping others out of the car, delivering breakfast baskets, monitoring the hallways, and walking younger student to class. We currently have safety sashes that buckle in the back and are very confusing to put on. We would love new, improved vests that are easy to put on and make our students more visible. The sign will be hung above where students drop off their backpacks and pick up their vests. Students also hold open the doors in the mornings but the door stoppers would allow them to help carry things for students and adults. I love seeing our 5th grade students show their leadership skills. Your support will make them more visible and helpful!
