This is my first year at Riverwood Middle School, but my 16th year of teaching overall.  I have taught mostly in Wake County schools, starting out by teaching high school English for six years. I mostly taught 9th grade when I was teaching high school English, and I loved helping students set up good study and organizational habits to help them get started in high school.  I realized that I would enjoy helping middle school students even more.  Starting when my first child was born, I took some time off to be a stay at home mom.  I worked part-time for a few semesters teaching beginning English courses at Wake Technical Community College.  I then taught 8th grade language arts at an alternative school in Wake County for three years, spent one year teaching special education, and then spent the past five years teaching 7th grade English language arts.  

My husband is also a teacher, and we have three wonderful children: Megan, who is in 8th grade, Daniel, who is in 6th grade, and Hannah, who is in 2nd grade.  We recently moved to Clayton, and we are enjoying getting to know the area after living in Raleigh for many years.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, photography, and camping.  This summer, we took a month-long road trip with our kids out West to hike and enjoy many National Parks and other great sights in our amazing country.  I am so happy to be able to help students grow and enjoy the magic of language every day.
