About Ms. Maggie


I am so excited to begin my fourth year teaching at Nativity Preschool!  I graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Elementary Education and I taught for five years before my son Miles was born in 2006.  My husband Justin and I have 3 children:  Miles (10), Liam (7) and Ellie (5) and our rescued beagle-mix Wilma.  I like to exercise when I have time and our family enjoys hiking, traveling, music and actively participating in our church. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to teach these wonderful children and share Christ's love with them.  It will be a great year full of fun, learning and growth!
