This will be my 21st year of teaching and my eighth year at Oak Grove. I have been married 25 years to a nice fellow who grew up in Cary, and we have two daughters, a dog, and two cats. (Our home can be a little busy.) Our older daughter is a sophomore at NCSU and our younger one is a junior at Middle Creek High School. You Carolina Fans will be happy to know that I am a 1980 graduate with a BA in Psychology and Sociology. While I’ll always be a true Tar Heel, I will graciously welcome the few who choose to cheer on another team or two. After all, I had to do so myself just this past year! After working in medical practices, I returned to UNC-Charlotte to earn my second BA in Elementary Education. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1995. In 2007, I received my National Board Certification. I enjoy communicating with my parents, so feel free to contact me. We all want what is best for your child, my student.
