I have lived in North Carolina most of my life and in Onslow County for the past 25 years. I am married and have two daughters who followed in their mother's footsteps and graduated from UNC. I began teaching at the American School of Kuwait and after meeting my future husband, returned to North Carolina. Here I have taught at Dixon Elementary School, Thompson Elementary School, New Bridge Middle School and most recently Southwest Elementary where I have been teaching for nine years. I have taught 4th through 7th grade all subjects for 32 years, but I love working with fourth graders the most. In my free time, I enjoy reading, walking, and being near the water. My husband is determined to turn me into a fisherwoman! Gus and Sadie are our two dogs and they keep us busy at home.
