This will be my 26th year of teaching with the last 21 here at ECES. I am a mother to Kamye,20, a junior at Appalachian State and J.T, 14, a freshman at Clayton High School. I have a passion for cheerleading and Boy Scouts. My daughter cheers at App State and my son is a Star Scout. I am also a Disney Junkie! I would love to live in Fantasyland,with my husband. I enjoy relaxing on the beach, reading a great novel, and spending time with my family.
The theme of our classroom is ¨Peace, Love, and Happiness." It is my hope that my students develop a community that supports one another. I enjoy sharing experiences with my students as I watch them grow throughout the year. Education is so much more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. My passion is helping students grow into kind, motivated, excited citizens. The goal is to be at Peace with the decisions we make, Share love with those around us, and be happy with the outcome.
