This will be my nineteenth year at Southwest Elementary.  I have been teaching for 31 years.  Again this year I am teaching fourth grade.  Previously, I have taught a third/fourth grade combination class, third grade, first grade and Kindergarten.  A few years ago I received my National Board Certification and have since renewed.  I also keep busy with many committees at the school. 

My family is very special to me.  My husband is Tim and is a familiar face in the Southwest area.  You may have seen him at school, at Onslow Pines Park, the soccer field, cub scouts, Scouts and a few other places.  My son, Ryan graduated from Greensboro College with his Bachelors Degree and Wingate University with his Masters Degree.  He is living and working in Charlotte, NC as an athletic trainer.   Ashley, my daughter, graduated from Southwest High and now attends William Peace University in Raleigh. She is a Senior this year, plays soccer for the William Peace Pacers and enjoys many extra activities. She is planning to major in Business Administration. 

There are also three furry creatures residing in our house.  Our wonderful dog Dixie is a Shiba Inu mix and loves people.  She is a great family watchdog and pet.  The newest member is Oreo, a German shorthaired pointer and a hound dog mix.  She is a love sponge.  Her name fits her looks since she is black and white spotted.   Socks, our cat, is gray with four white paws.  He provides much entertainment and love.  All three have their own personality.  Our family wouldn't be complete without any of these members. 

I keep very busy with school and all of the aspects of teaching.  I also stay very busy with the events in my children's lives.  When I do have free time which isn't very often, I like to read, work in the yard, go to the beach and travel.
