Welcome to NGMS! I am happy to be working with 6th grade and a 7th grade team this year. A little about me... my husband and I moved to North Carolina from Wisconsin (yes we are Packer fans!) I am a graduate of the University of Whitewater, Wisconsin and have taught K - middle school. We have two beautiful daughters that are GCS graduates and one graduated from ECU and one is attending NC State. My house does remain full as we have 3 cats and 3 dogs currently under our roof. We have enjoyed the variety that North Carolina offers with beautiful mountains and a spectacular ocean. When not at school, I enjoy reading, walking, and hiking with my dogs.
I have been working at Northern for 11 years and have enjoyed getting to know students and their families. I look forward to working with all students to see them reach their full potential. My belief is that all students have talents and I want to help them cultivate those to become responsible young adults. Using a variety of methods in the classroom is how I plan to reach all students. Through repetition and varied activities, each student will be able to reach their full potential and show the growth from one year to the next.
