Welcome to NWMS.

    I am originally from Indiana and I graduated from Purdue University. This is my 21st year teaching. I have taught 4 years in elementary and the last 16 years here at NWMS. I love teaching and being around middle school students. I love to watch them mature during their time in middle school. I received my Masters Degree in 2008 from UNCG and then earned my National Board Certification in 2010.

    I have three children. My oldest son, Christopher, graduated from NC State and is a Geo-Physicist. He is married to my wonderful daughter-in-law, Amanda and they live in Mississippi. My daughter, Brittney, is married to my son-in-law, Thane. He is a Major in the Marines. My daughter takes care of my fabulous grandchildren, Caden and Devin, and she also graduated from NC State as a Biologist. My youngest son is in the Air Force and is stationed in Texas. He has my youngest grandson, Lucian.  My family is very important to me and I love spending as much time as I can with them.
