This is my 6th year at Davis Drive Elementary, but I have been teaching in WCPSS for many years. I love teaching! I have two boys in middle school who went to DDE. I grew up in Cary and went to Apex High School. I graduated from ECU and have a M.Ed from UNC-CH. I love to read, grow plants, and travel. My favorite thing to do is read on the beach.

It's exciting to be working in a Davis Drive Elementary first grade classroom this year!  I have been working at DDE for 12 years but have been part of the DDE family for 22 years.  We moved from Connecticut to Cary in 1995 when my two oldest girls started 2nd Grade and Kindergarten the year DDE opened.  I started working at DDE when my youngest daughter was in 1st Grade and now she is in College!  My alma mater is Pace University in New York where I met my husband and received a BS in MIS and worked at IBM for 15 years.  I am a wife, mom, a lifelong learner, enjoy technology, science, art, cats and the outdoors.  It's wonderful to be part of the Davis Drive Dolphin Pod!  #SwimFwd
