Degrees and Certifications:
I have been at Ballentine since it opened in 2002. I was a 4th grade teacher the first year and then switched to the role of Media Specialist. I graduated from ECU with a Masters in Library Science in 2007. I'm the administrator of the library media program as well as the tech contact for the school. I also teach in the library during extension time so that teachers can have common planning.
Before Ballentine, I was at Northwoods Elementary in school in Cary, NC and started teaching their in 1997. I have a daughter who is 10 years old who is my inspiration for what I do in the library. She is a Fifth Grader here on Track 4. My husband is Lead Counselor at Active Tracks Camp, which is a Track out camp in Holly Springs. Our family has a rescued dog named Patch and Miss Kitty our rescued cat.
