Welcome to AVID at Riverwood Middle School!
This is my first year teaching and coordinating the AVID program at Riverwood Middle School, and I am so excited for this new opportunity.
Attending college through the Teaching Fellows program, I graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1996 with my bachelor's degree of Science in Elementary Education. I have previously taught middle school in Stokes County and Forsyth County in North Carolina. This is my seventh year of teaching in Johnston County.
I am native of Stallings, North Carolina, but I have lived in Clayton for the last thirteen years with my husband (David), our children Sarah, Lauren and Charlie and our dog named Mr. Wiggles.
In my freetime, I enjoy running and walking on the Neuse River trails and spending time with my family. I love watching my son play soccer and my daughters participate in piano and band concerts. We are members of Tippett's Chapel Church in Clayton, and I teach the 4-6 grade Sunday School class there.
I look forward to working with you to achieve great things this year!
