I graduated from Tennessee Technological University
in Cookeville, TN in 1991 with a major in Elementary Education. I taught 12 years in TN. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This is my second year teaching in North Carolina after taking a few years off to help my family adjust to our move to another state. I am very excited to be at East Elementary and teaching 5th grade!!
I have been married for 25 years to my high school sweetheart, Randy. We have three children named Ryne, Kendall, and Emily. My boys have both graduated from high school and my daughter currently attends Troutman Middle School. I also have a German Shepherd dog named Libby and a cat named Cookie.
