I was born in Cleveland County and was raised in Lincoln County. I am the youngest of five children of which four are educators. I have an AB degree in Mathematics from Lenior Rhyne University
, a Masters of Art in Teaching from Winthrop University
and an Education Specialist Degree from Appalachian State University
. I am in my thirty-fourth year and enjoy working with students.
I have twin daughters who are also involved in education. One works in the Public Relations office here in Iredell-Statesville Schools and the other teaches English in Lincoln County. Two of my hobbies include collecting M & M dispensers and home improvement projects.
