Monday, July 31 was the beginning of my 14th year of teaching!  I am a native New Yorker and attended The State University of New York at Potsdam.  I moved to NC in December 1991 to find a teaching job and to follow the future Mr. Walsh.  I substitute taught for one year in Wake County and in July 1993 started my first year at West Lake Elementary- Second grade.  I taught there for 3 years while working on my Masters in Education at UNC Chapel Hill. I left in 1996 to go back to grad school full time to finish my degree. I graduated in 1997 with my Masters in Education- Reading.  In June 1997 Mr. Walsh and I headed to the UK for his work and I ended up teaching there for two years at Furze Platt Infant School -First grade.  While there, we traveled all over Europe and even headed to Egypt for a week.  When we moved back in 1999, we promptly had our first son, Thomas. He is a rising 12th grader at Green Hope High.  Ben followed along and he is a rising 9th grader at Green Hope High School.  They keep us busy with soccer, boy scouts, and youth group.  I stayed home with the boys for about 10 years and taught preschool during that time.  In 2009, I returned to teaching.  This is my third year at Olive Chapel and I am excited to SAIL with all my Third graders this year!
