I am looking forward to having a great fifth year at North Iredell High School.
I am the proud mother of two children. My son graduated from North Carolina State University in May and my daughter is now a freshman there. I have been teaching for over twenty years. I have a bachelors in zoology and a masters of life science with a focus in microbial genetics from North Carolina State University along with a doctorate of education in higher education from Western Carolina.
In the fall semester TJ Brinkman will be joining my classroom as a student teacher. TJ is a senior at UNC Charlotte majoring in biology with a minor in education.
I am teaching a college class for Mitchell Community college during second period this year so I don't have a planning period. I will answer emails between classes and return phone calls after school. I am sorry my availability is slightly reduced this year but I am thrilled to be able to offer students the chance to earn college credit during the regular school day.
Students should have a three ring binder, notebook paper, pens, pencils, and a small composition book in class each day along with a charged computer. Notecards and colored pencils can be useful but are not required. I always appreciate donations of tissues and hand sanitizer.
