All about the teacher

I am so happy to be your child's teacher while Mrs. Nasim is on maternity leave.   I will do everything I can to make this an easy transition for all of us.  The staff at Atlas has opened their arms to me and made me feel very welcome. 

Here's a little information about me...

I graduated from UNC-Greensboro in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (K-6).  After graduation I got married and moved to Greenville, NC while my husband finished his physical therapy degree at ECU.  While in Greenville, I taught kindergarten for Pitt County Schools.  This summer, my husband graduated and we moved to Raleigh, where he found a job.  So far we are really enjoying living here! 

You may be wondering if I have any experience with 1st graders, and I do!  All of my student teaching experience was in 1st grade, and I really enjoyed it!

When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy photography and scrapbooking.  Recently I've been learning how to play golf (thanks to my husband).  I also have a huge love for hot air balloons!

I am very excited to get to know all of your children and to help them succeed here at Atlas!  Please feel free to email at any time for questions or concerns.  (
