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 19 years.  We have two wonderful children; ages 14 and 17.  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!
