I am excited to be starting another year at Fuquay-Varina Middle School! This will be my thirteenth year of teaching 8th grade Science at FVMS and I am proud to be a member of the Bengal Family. I grew up in Ohio and attended Kent State University for my teaching degree. I am a HUGE Cleveland sports fan (win or lose) with basketball being my favorite sport. After I graduated and got married in 2005, I moved down to North Carolina with my husband and started my family and fabulous career at FVMS. My husband and I have two wonderful children (10 and 7) that keep us busy. When I am not at the softball, baseball or soccer fields with my children, I enjoy running, reading and relaxing. I look forward to an amazing year. Welcome to SUCCESS!
