My experience includes 3 years of substituting at various schools in the area.  I started working at Bell Fork Elementary in the Severe /Profound Class and then I moved to Jacksonville High School with the Autistic Class.  After a year there I started working in the OCC Prep Program at JHS. I went to CCCC and took classes to get my associates degree and then went to UNCW and recieved my teaching degree.  My original teaching degree is for K-6, highly qualified to teach english, math, science and history and I am licensed to teach Special Needs General Curriculum.  I have been the Exceptional Needs Dept. Chair for the last 10 years. 


I am from New Bern, NC.  I lived there with my grandparents and graduated from New Bern Senior High in 1974.  I went to school for awhile after graduation, got married and divorced.  I joined the army national guard, went to  bootcamp in New Jersey in January, blizzard weather and then to weapons school in Maryland.  After three years I did an interservice transfer and changed to the navy.  I went to Florida for boot camp and to SanDeigo, CA for Dental Assistant school.  I came to Camp Lejeune in 1984 where I worked in the operating room doing facial surgery.  I worked in the dental field  for 14 1/2 years and then did a career change to teacher assistant.  I met my husband, Gary, in 1984 and we married in February of 1985.  We have 2 daughters, Lisa and Lesley.  I made a career change in 1998 to work in the school system.  I have always worked with special needs because thats where my heart is.  I was a teacher assistant until December of 06 when I graduated from UNCW. I then came back home to JHS to work.
