My Professional Mission
I will develop the quality of making each new day fresh and full of opportunity - for teaching new things to my students and learning something new myself.
I was born and raised outside of Los Angeles, California. I have been married to Rick for 40 years. I have two children, Jennifer and Matthew, and four grandchildren. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Arkansas Tech University. I received my Master's degree in Special Education from UNC Charlotte. I have been teaching at East Iredell Middle School for 20 years. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I currently teach English Language Arts for students in all grade levels at East Middle School. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, cooking, dancing, traveling, and spending time with my family.
