My passion for teaching began in New Jersey where I was born and raised. In New Jersey, In 2000 I worked for my family-owned business, Tours Master Inc. I worked as a transportation monitor for special needs children. I was also motivated by my family of educators, teachers, guidance counselors and teachers. I was destined to follow in their footsteps. Therefore, upon relocating to North Carolina, I graduated from Clayton High School and immediately began accomplishing my career goal in education.
Johnston Community College In 2011, I graduated from Johnston Community College with an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies and Humanities. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature from Fayetteville State University. There I served as the President of the English department. Presently, I am working towards completing my masters. I am a lifelong learner. These educational experiences shaped me into the educator I am today.
My two children who attend schools in Johnston County. When I’m not at school, you can find me running my businesses, spending family time, and attending church events. I look forward to learning alongside the students, staff, and parents at Selma Middle School. So lets... “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it”.

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
