This is my twelfth teaching in Onslow County Schools, and my eleventh year at Hunters Creek Middle School. For my first 9 years teaching, I taught Algebra, Math, and Science. I currently teach Technology with the Paxton Patterson STEM Lab which is right in line with my college degrees. In addition to teaching experience I also have 4 years experience as a Electronics Technician in the US Coast Guard.
I am the mother of 3 boys ages 24, 22, and 16 as well as the future step-mother of 4 girls ages 23, 19, 11, and 10! I served in the United States Coast Guard as an Electronics Technician for four years during the first gulf war. I was born and raised in Chicopee, Massachusetts where most of my brothers, sisters and extended family still live. Due to the military lifestyle, I have lived in Massachusetts, California, New Jersey, Washington, Virginia and North Carolina. I have traveled across the US by car twice and I have been to a number of foreign countries including Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, Cuba, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Puerto Rico (not actually a foreign country but it feels like one.) I love the coastal Carolina lifestyle!
