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- Math.
I moved to Sneads Ferry sixteen years ago, after spending most of my life in the beautiful mountains of Boone, NC. My husband, David, and I have been married thirty years and are blessed with four children. Our oldest, Alex, graduated from college in 2014 and now works in the tech industry in San Francisco. Our oldest daughter, Aunika, owns a dance studio in Wilmington. Another daughter, Ashlind, graduated from college and got married this past summer. She now lives in Branson, Missouri. Addison, our youngest daughter, is attending college in South Carolina. When I'm not involved in school activities, I enjoy reading, cycling, traveling, and quilting. Ask me about climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in 2018!
