Hello My Name Is...
I am excited to be working with the 5th grade students at KIS this year. This is my 4th year working in Kannapolis City school district and my 14th year working as a school psychologist in North Carolina. When I am not working, my interests include hiking, boating, coaching soccer, working out, and being a mom. I have two boys in school this year (kindergarten and third grade) and they keep me very busy.
Feel free to contact me by email or by school phone at (704) 932-4161. I will be at KIS on Tuesdays and Thursdays this year and at McKnight Head Start on Mondays and Fridays.
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
B.S. in Psychology at Indiana University
M.S in School Psychology at Winthrop University
SSP in School Psychology at Winthrop University
I believe that children need to learn social and emotional skills in order to excel in life. These skills need just as much emphasis as educational skills and it is our job as educators to attend to the "whole child" when preparing our students to be lifelong learners.
