I am so excited to be back as a Swansboro Pirate! After three years of teaching bright, curious, personable students, I will continue in my fourth year at SMS challenging students to think critically and act kindly.
Before completing a Master of Education in 2006 from George Mason University, I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Miami University. Prior to working at Swansboro Middle School, I have taught English at the high school and middle school levels, including IB Language and Literature and World Literaturein high school to Reading and Writing in middle school. Teaching at multiple levels, both internationally and domestically, has given me a comprehensive view of the skills and knowledge that an adolescent needs to be successful.
During the summer I love to spend time with my fantastic family, including four nieces and four nephews whom I adore and who never fail to entertain me and make me smile.
