Hello Timrod Tiger students and parents,

I highly look forward to working with each of you this year in Physical Education. My email is if you would like to contact me. I make sure to read and respond to all emails! 

I am originally from a small town near Charlotte, NC and just moved here to Florence. I recently graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education. I am certified K-12 in Health/PE in both North and South Carolina (I like South Carolina better). This is my first full year teaching completely on my own. I am a third generation teacher on both sides of my family so I feel that it comes natural to me. I have a passion of working with students and growing with them. I enjoy teaching because I learn so much from the students that I see daily, just like they learn from me, which is often seen as an afterthought from the teacher's perspective.

Some of my out of school hobbies include staying active, spending time with family and friends, chilling on the beach, and keeping up with all sports in general. I am a diehard NC State Wolfpack fan in every sport. The rest of the time I am rooting for my alma mater ECU, unless they are playing the Wolfpack of course. 

Here's to a great year and years ahead!!
