I have been teaching for 33 years, and this is my 16th year at Wake Forest Elementary. I was born in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, but grew up in Southern Pines, NC. In my free time I like to read and spend time with my family. I have two daughters, one is a junior at NC State and one is a freshman at UNC-C. I love all animals and have one dog named Fraya. I used to have 5 pet pigs!
