I am beginning my 31st year of teaching, all of which have been in the Iredell-Statesville school system. I have three children, a son Ross, who is 28 is in the Navy, married and lives in Jacksonville, Florida, a daughter, Whitney who is 27, a speech pathologist is married and lives in Charlotte. My youngest son Zach, is a junior at UNC-CH. I have two grandsons Liam, who is 6 and Alex who is almost a year old. My husband sells educational products, which comes in quite handy. I have a master's degree in early childhood education from Appalachian State University. I love Panther Football, UNC basketball and reading when I have time. My true love is working with children and kindergarten is where my heart lies! I look forward to another fun, rewarding school year.
