This will be my fourteenth year teaching at Nebo. Prior to this I student taught in a third grade classroom at P.G. I graduated in 2005 from Appalachian State with my undergraduate degree in elementary education. I finished my masters through Appalachian in July of 2009.
I grew up in Old Fort and still live there. I am a product of the McDowell County Public School System. I attended Old Fort Elementary, West McDowell Junior High, and McDowell High. I have great memories of teachers who inspired me to become a teacher.
I love history and find myself traveling to different places to learn about historical events! With my family I have traveled to 22 states. One of my favorite trips was to Louisiana where we took a swamp tour from a local guide. The bayou was one of the most beautiful places on earth. On these trips I try to find some type of baseball game to go to. I have been to ten major league stadiums and several minor league fields as well.
My family is very close. We spend a lot of time together doing typical family things. I have two brothers who I love, but also find them to be typical brothers!!
