     I grew up in a United States Marine Corp family! Although I traveled to many exciting places, North Carolina is my home!  I feel that growing up in a military family helps me to understand the many students I've taught over the years who also are part of military families.  I am grateful to my parents for providing such an interesting childhood.

  •      I attended the majority of my school years in Onslow County schools.  My school years started out in first grade at Clyde Erwin Elementary.  I even attended Bell Fork for a short period of time!  I am a graduate of Jacksonville High School and East Carolina University. 

         I am married to an avid hunter/fisherman.  Through him I have actually learned to enjoy fishing and watching outdoor programs.  I have two healthy, smart and beautiful daughters.  My oldest daughter is a Communications graduate from ECU.  My youngest daughter attends East Carolina University and will graduate in May 2017 with degrees in both History & Religous Studies. They are truly the blessings of my life and I am most thankful for them.  They are my two greatest accomplishments!

         My favorite education quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson- "The secret in education lies in respecting the student."  I pride myself on getting to know my students and respecting them for who they are.  I have had the wonderful joy and blessing of teaching many of the most wonderful children I could ever imagine.  They have brought much joy to my heart and have managed to teach me many new things over the past couple of decades!!  I look forward to a few more years of teaching at Bell Fork Elementary!
