    Master's of Arts in Teaching from UNC - Chapel Hill, 2002



    I taught middle and high school Science, Social Studies, Math, and ELA for five years in inner-city Boston in the communities of Brighton, West Roxbury, and Chelsea.  I took the next eleven years off while my children were small.  I returned to the classroom in 2018 and taught Science and Social Studies for the next four years at Jacksonville Commons Middle School.  This will be my tenth year teaching, and I'm excited about teaching Science at New Bridge Middle School!



    I grew up in North Carolina, and I love living in the South!  I am married with four children, three of whom either currently attend or have attended New Bridge.  We love spending time at the beach and with our French bulldog, Lucy.
