Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. Business Administration Certified teacher North Carolina
I have been a teacher at Archer Lodge Middle School stating the year it opened in 2007. I moved here from Nevada to begin my first teaching role. Prior to becoming a teacher, I attended Wext Liberty University. In addition to earning a Degree in Business Administration, I was also on the Basketball team. I spent 10 years working in the food and beverage industry in Las Vegas before deciding to persue teaching. I attended The University of Nevada Las Vegas where I studied secondary education in the field of science. Prior to graduation, I accepted the position as a science teacher at ALMS on the lateral entry program where I earned my state certification in education. I have seen this school grow and have had the honor of educating over 1,500 students. My passion as a teacher is to help students grow as young upcoming adults and to learn how to learn. I feel educating our youth is one of the most important jobs in the world.
Johnston County Public Schools is in the business of providing a holistic educational experience that affirms and prepares our students for successful lives by teaching not only academic disciplines but how to treat one another. We are aware of recent social media posts and other unacceptable actions that have brought attention to racial and political insensitivity, which this school district does not condone.
