I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Middle School education with a double concentration in Language Arts and Social Studies. I graduated with my Master's degree in secondary English education from Druary University in Springfield, Missouri.
I believe every child has the ability to learn given enough time and patience. Education is a joint venture of child, teacher, and parents. One of my favorite sayings is "It takes a village to raise a child."
I am an avid Duke fan and have been since I was "knee-high to a grasshopper." People often ask me why when I graduated from NC State. The answer is simple: My father was a Methodist minister, and Duke has a Methodist divinity school. I pulled for the basketball team all during the lean years, and now that they are on top, the victories are all the sweeter.
