I attended Lenoir-Rhyne College and graduated in 1989 with a degree in middle grades education with a concentration in English.  I have been teaching for 26 years and have worked in Hickory Public Schools since 2000. 

I complete numerous services projects for our school and community.  I am the director of the play A Christmas Carol.

My greatest hobby is READING!!!!  I love to read Shakespeare and poetry (especially E. A. Poe).  My favorite units to teach are The Giver, "The Diary of Anne Frank" (play version), and The Outsiders.  I live in Hickory with my husband, two children,  and our dog named Rosie.
