I am proud to say I am a graduate of East Carolina University. GO PIRATES! This year I started my 18th year of teaching. I began my teaching career as a 1st grade teacher at Franklinton Elementary in Franklin Country. In 2000, I came to Zebulon Elementary GT Magnet School and taugh 3rd grade for 4 years. In 2004, I accepted the role of AIG teacher and then transitioned to the IRT/Magnet Coordinator position in January of 2014. Currently, I am the IRT, SIP Chair, and testing coordinator. I am the mom of two beautiful girls, Reese is 9 and Riley is 13. I was born on a farm in Kentucky and I love all animals. I have three cats, Rosie, Violet and Vlad. When I am not at school, you will find me working out at the gym, spending time with my girls, reading or shopping!
