I have been teaching Second Grade at Hominy Valley since the school opened it's doors in 2000.  Prior to that, I taught Kindergarten in Greensboro, NC and a K-1 combination class in Flagstaff, Arizona.  I received my teaching certificate at Northern Arizona University and my B.S. from Radford University.  I earned my National Board Certification in 2006 and my Master's Degree from Montreat College in the spring of 2010. 

I am originally from Roanoke, Virginia.  After graduation from Radford, I spent 4 years working and attending graduate classes in Arizona.  My husband and I then decided to move back East.  We lived in Greensboro for one year before moving to Asheville (we missed the mountains).  My husband and I have now lived in Asheville for 17 years.  We have two wonderful children; ages 15 (a Sophomore) and 18 (a college Freshman).  My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family.  Together we enjoy traveling, being outdoors, reading, and playing games. 
I love my job!  Second graders are such a special group of young children.  I know we are going to have a fantastic year!  Second grade is an exciting time.  I’m eager to watch your student learn, grow, and enjoy successful school endeavors.  I hope to instill a love for learning in each of my students and help them to reach their greatest potential!
