I grew up in New Jersey, outside of Philidelphia. I have lived in NC since gaduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I have over 18 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings from preschool aged through high school and adult public health education. I worked several years at the NC State Laboratory of Public Health and adult vocational education at Dorothea Dix Hospital. My favorite teaching setting by far is high school. I have two children one in college and the other in high school. I understand the challenges and rewards of being a parent. I want each of my students to know that every day is a new day. Your past doesn't make your destiny. Make goals, challenge yourself, see what the world has to offer and be the best that you can be. Don't worry about what others are doing - just do your best.
It is my goal to provide an environment where students feel safe and free to express opinions as well as provide a variety of opporutnities that promote learning to meet the needs of all students as well as provide leadership opportunities.
I have experience teaching online, I taught online several years ago as well as developed an online training program for the NC State Laboratory. I will work with you to help overcome your frustrations of online learning and help make your online education the best that it can be.
