WELCOME!!!! This is my third year at Swansboro Middle School and boy have they been doozies! My first year teaching at SBMS, I dealt with Hurricane Florence and my second year, I dealt with the shut down due to COVID-19. 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 and 50 degrees below zero for many weeks during the winter! Needless to say, I am so glad to live in North Carolina away from the freezing temperatures and colossal amounts of snow and even happier to be a part of the Pirate Family! This community has been very welcoming and kind. I have met some great people the past 2 years and am excited to meet even more! 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 part of 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. I am excited to meet each one of you and look forward to navigating this new world of remote learning with you!
