• Welcome to 8th grade Language Arts for the 2020-2021 school year! This is my 4th year at Northwest Middle School and I am excited to start another school year as a Viking! I am a proud graduate of Virginia Tech, where I completed an undergraduate degree in English and a Masters in Education. I grew up in Forest, Virginia and currently live in Greensboro with my husband Jason, my nine year old daughter, Haven, and my seven year old son, Jake. We also have kitty sisters named Sugar and Sprinkles. This will be my 13th year teaching middle school Language Arts. My family keeps me extremely busy! I enjoy reading, hiking, shopping, running, travelling and taking my kids on outings that they enjoy. I look forward to connecting with each of you online and in the classroom hopefully soon!
