Welcome to West Johnston High School!

I grew up in New Jersey, just outside of Philidelphia.   I have lived in NC since graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I have over 20 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings, from preschool aged through high school and adult public health education.  I worked for 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 young adult children,    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 opportunities that promote learning to meet the needs of all students as well as provide leadership opportunities.
