    About Your Teacher

    I was born and raised in Pulaski, VA, a small mountain town about 2 hours from Greensboro. I live with my husband and our two dogs Izzy and Mamba. My son attends UNC-Charlotte. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English at NC A&T and UNCG. This will be my 9th year as a teacher at Swann Middle.

    Reading is one of my favorite things to do, especially mystery, sci-fi, and horror novels. I also love watching movies, traveling, and trying new foods.

    A few more favorites of mine are seafood, bacon, coffee, Starbursts, Drake, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, Amazon, Target, and the color pink.

    I am very excited to get to know you and to work with your family this year!  Please reach out at any time if you have questions or concerns.  This school year will be filled with lots of fun, learning, and new adventures!
