Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching at Princeton Middle School since 2000. I am currently the 8th grade Social Studies teacher. Social Studies/History has always been a passion of mine and I enjoy sharing that passion with my students.
I communicate dates for assignments due, quizzes and tests with my students and/or parents through Remind. As soon as the class schedules are finalized, I will post here the link to join Remind. I urge all students to join so that you can be kept up to date on deadlines and dates for tests/quizzes. Parents are welcome to join too but please let me know who your student is.
I am posting the entire 8th grade supply list - once you know your schedule you will know exactly what to get for your specific classes/teachers. Please have these supplies the first day of school as we will hit the ground running. My Social Studies specific supply list is also posted on another page within this site for your convenience. I look forward to working with your students in the 20/21 school year.

As we anticipate a return to a normal school year in 2021-2022, with our students participating in face-to-face instruction five days a week, we are offering an exciting new opportunity for families. In the fall of 2021 we will open a new school, the JCPS Virtual Academy, for any student interested in grades K-12.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
Johnston County Public Schools has updated its plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
