My mission as an elementary art teacher is to provide a positive classroom environment which is conducive to creating meaningful art that represents each individual's love and desire to use their imagination. I remain an advocate for the NC visual arts curriculum and promote art in the classroom as an important part of a successful education.
I'm so excited to begin my third year at WHES and my 20th year teaching elementary art. What a privilege it is to be an educator in a great county and in a super state. I'm so proud to live in and be a NC native. I grew up in Cary, graduated a Pirate from ECU, and live with my husband Tim and son Jake on the lake here in Mooresville. We enjoy boat time, our dog Maggie, cooking, walking and rennovating our house. My favorinte activity is attending every Panther football game at Bank of America Stadium.
