I love teaching 8th grade at Dixon Middle School. For most of my years here I taught Math, Language Arts, and Social Studies. For the past few years I have been teaching just one subject- Social Studies.
I moved to Sneads Ferry fourteen years ago after spending most of my life in the beautiful mountains of Boone, NC. My husband and I have been married twenty-seven years and are blessed with four children. Our oldest, a son, graduated from college in 2014 and now works in San Francisco. Our oldest daughter is a local dance instructor and another daughter is attending college in Virginia. Our youngest daughter is a student at DHS. When I'm not involved in school or family activities, I enjoy reading and quilting.
