I was born and raised in this area, and have lived here and worked here my entire life. This is my twenty-fifth year teaching; before working here I taught in Harnett County and Johnston County. I have taught kindergarten, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade. Some of my hobbies include reading, cooking, spending time outside, hanging out with my family and friends, and taking care of my twenty-five pets! I love teaching and learning. I believe that enthusiasm is contagious, and my goal is to impart a lifelong love of learning into each of my students.
