Professional Mission Statement
I will listen to understand, use wisdom in my response, and show compassion in my actions.
This is my 26th year of teaching kindergarten in the Richlands area. It is a joy to work with these little ones and provide them with a positive school experience.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from East Carolina University with a Bachelor's degree in elementary education. My degree certifies me to teach grades K-6 with a focus area in reading for K-12.
Being a Richlands native has provided me with the unique opportunity to not only receive my early education, but to return and give back to the school community that enabled me to pursue my own goals in life. My husband of 28 years is also a native of Onslow County. We have enjoyed life in this rural town and have raised our two children with the same values that our parents set forth for us. I look forward to what the future holds and continuing to provide a positive and nurturing school environment.
