  • Welcome Northwest High School students and families to the 2020 – 2021 school year. I am looking forward to the start of our new school year! I am sure this will be the best year ever. Together let’s Inhale confidence, exhale doubt and always believe in ourselves!

    I am excited to be returning to Northwest as an Assistant Principal! I began my journey in education with Guilford County Schools forty years ago as an Elementary Substitute Teacher and became a Teacher Assistant. After ten years I became an Elementary Teacher. In 2006 I was honored to be selected as a North Carolina Principal’s Fellow and obtained my Masters’ Degree in School Administration in 2008 from North Carolina A&T State University (Aggie Pride)! I became an Assistant Principal at Southwest Middle School and later Ferndale Middle School. In 2014 I joined the administrative team at Northwest High. This is my seventh year! I am so proud to be a part of the Northwest High School Viking Family!

    I enjoy music, singing, dancing, drama, drawing, puzzles and I play the violin. My favorite pastimes include spending time with my family, shopping and taking mini vacations (traveling)!

    My husband and I are proud parents and grandparents of, our children, Jeremy, Jamison and wife Regina (Karson and Kylan) and Wendell (Iveyona, Iveion, and Jayce).
