Degrees and Certifications:
After working for 13 years as a speech pathologist in the public school system in Texas, my family and I moved to Apex in 2000. I was able to stay home with my youngest child for 2 years until she started kindergarten at Olive Chapel. In 2002 began working at Olive Chapel as a teacher assistant in the AUII classroom. During the fall of the 2003-04 school year, I jumped way out of my comfort zone and began teaching in the AUI classroom. Working with the AU population became my joy and passion. I spent 7 years learning and growing in that environment. In 2009 I decided to make another change to a CCR teaching position. This year will make my 8th year in the CCR position and my 15th year at Olive Chapel. WOW! It does not seem like I have walked these halls for that many years. I can truly say that I have loved the journey. I continue to have a strong passion for teaching and look forward to many more years with the wonderful students and families of the Olive Chapel community.
Besides being a teacher, I am a mother of four children and grandmother of 3 beautiful grandbabies (for now…). I have a wonderful husband of 20+ years that has always encouraged and supported my journey as a teacher.
