How exciting it is for me to be part of opening another new school in Holly Springs! I began teaching in Wake County 19 years ago at Holly Springs Elementary School. From there I was hired at Holly Ridge Elementary when they opened their doors in 2003. I started as a Kindergarten TA (for ALL 6 teachers!) and quickly decided to move into my own classroom! I’ve also taught 1st Grade for 9 years, and 2nd Grade for 3 years. I recently received certification as an ESL ( English as a Second Language) Teacher, I am so excited to be returning for my 4th year as the Oakview Owls ESL teacher!
I have lived in North Carolina for 32years, and Holly Springs has been our home for 27 of those. My husband, Andy, and I have 3 grown children (all of whom went to Holly Springs’ schools at one time or another!). Our son, Taylor and his wife, Doree, live in Atlanta with their 3 month son, Gardner. Our daughter, Kaitlyn and her husband, Bradley, live right around the corner in Clayton. They have a 15 month old daughter, Macklyn. Our “baby,” Anna, upon graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill, spent the past 2 years in Atlanta working at Grady Hospital. She recently returned to Chapel Hill and is employed at UNC Hospital.
When we have the time, we love walking around Bass Lake (in our backyard), hanging out with our grandchildren, going to the beach, and taking trips with friends. I am super-excited to be a part of the Oakview Family!
