Hello to my Hominy Valley Family and Community, 
I was asked to share a little bit about myself.  I grew up in Brevard and attended Brevard Elementary, Brevard Middle, and Brevard High School. I attended Appalachian State for my undergraduate degree and Western Carolina for my Masters and Administration degree. While my Master's is in Middle School Math and Science, I've also taught at both the Elementary and High School level. Most of my career has been in Middle School, teaching both Math and Science at Valley Springs Middle School in the Roberson District. I left the classroom after 18 years to pursue Administration.  This led to an Assistant Principal's position both at Hillandale Elementary for 2 years and Hendersonville High School for 3 years. I became the Principal of Hominy Valley during the 2017 - 2018 school year. I met my husband during High School and have been married for 36 years. We have three children and three grandchildren. I live my life being grateful and thankful for the many blessings in my life.  I choose to see the good in everything and I believe I have a choice in an attitude of gratitude or one of despair. I choose to be thankful for all. In the midst of the worldly pandemic, I am excited to be a part of our school and the Hominy Valley community. Teachers are working very hard to meet the needs of students and to make sure we are being responsive to the needs of your family as well.  Continue to let us know how we can be of service to you.
