A little about me..... Previously, I've lived in Indianapolis, Indiana, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Atlanta, Georgia, Plymouth, Minnesota, and Kansas City, Missouri. After leaving North Carolina 27 years ago, I am delighted to be back and call Johnston County home! My husband and I are the proud parents of two college students embracing life as empty nesters. Traveling, solving puzzles, and long-distance walks are all activities that bring me joy.
Teaching students and seeing that "I've got it moment" also brings me great fulfillment. As a parent, I know firsthand that middle school can be challenging. I am driven to support you and your child in every way possible. Before touching your child's mind, I want first to touch their heart and let them know they are in a safe place to learn, be inquisitive, and thrive! Let's make this school year the best one yet - G0 EAGLES 2022-2023!
