This is my 4th year at Swansboro High School, and I am ever proud to be a Pirate!
I am from the foothills of North Carolina, near Winston-Salem. I'm a proud alumnus of Catawba College and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. During graduate school, I served as a teacher for Writers in Action as well as a Teaching Assistant for college-level creative writing courses. For three years, I directed a summer camp called Young Writers Week for UNCW, which allows high school students to act as writers-in-residence on the main campus.
I live with my loving, bearded husband and our two cats, Delphy & Oscar.
I am constantly inspired by Milton's Paradise Lost and the poems of Raymond Carver and Diane Gilliam Fisher. If I'm not teaching, reading, or writing, I'm trying to catch a fish or go camping!
