Hello Eagles! I started teaching at Vandora Springs Elementary in 1996. I graduated from Radford University in 1994 with a BS with a certificate to teach. I taught for 2 years in Virginia before moving to North Carolina. Over my career, I have taught fourth, first and intervention (K-5). I love teaching! I became an intervention teacher due to my love of teaching reading. I graduated from Meredith College in 2011 with a masters in reading. I married my college sweetheart Stephen in 1996. We have two children, our daughter is attending ECU and our son is attending UNC - Chapel Hill.

Favorite Book: Children's Books and I did enjoy reading the entire Harry Potter series.

Favorite Team: The ACC, especially basketball

Hobbies: I like to bake, especially cupcakes and homemade bread.
