This is my second year at Swansboro Middle School, but I have been teaching at the high school and college level since 2004. I am a native of New York State, and no, not New York City; I am from Upstate New York near the Canadian Border. I am from the part of New York State that is cursed with winter for 10 months out of the year, 50 degrees below zero for many weeks during the winter! Needless to say, I am excited about living in North Carolina away from the freezing temperatures and colossal amounts of snow. I have always wanted to live in North Carolina as I am a HUGE Tar Heel and Panthers fan and have been since I was in high school. Some of the activities I enjoy in my free time are fishing, camping, and spending time at the beach. My family is very important to me and they are my reason for relocating to North Carolina. I have 2 children and 2 grandsons. My daughter is in the US Air Force and is currently stationed in Washington State and my son and grandsons live in Havelock. When I am not in the classroom, I can be found on the football field, basketball court or the baseball field as I am an assistant coach for each of those sports here at Swansboro Middle School.
