•  Welcome to my page!

    I have been teaching at NWMS for 17 years.  Prior to that, I taught Elementary grades in Randolph County and in Guilford County. I have been a special educator for 28 years. I owned my own private school, The next School, for one year for a total of 29 years of educating children.

    I am a graduate of NWHS. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education K-12, from Greensboro College and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in middle grades math, from UNC-G.

    I am currently collaborative teaching with Mrs. Potter in 7th grade LA and with Ms. Daniels in 7th grade math. 

    I have been married for 27 years. I have two awesome daughters. My oldest teaches at Kernodle Middle School and my youngest is a senior at NWHS. I love spending time with my family, going to concerts, traveling, and vacationing at the beach. I love being an educator and working with children.
