Hipp Hipp Hooray... 
Welcome to
2nd Grade!

A native of Kannapolis, I was the high school senior who said she would never live in her hometown as an adult: As the old adage goes, never say never! After nearly a decade away, I found my way "home" to Fred L. Wilson in 2014, and now I can't imagine spending my days anywhere else.

Educational Philosophy/ Vision:

I believe in the magic of curiosity and the power of kindness, and the importance of both in shaping the next generation of young men and women. I strive to facilitate a classroom community of compassionate students and critical thinkers. Each and every child is capable of incredible things and it is an absolute privilege to watch my students begin to realize their own greatness.
