    About Me
    I moved to the Charlotte area 8 years ago from Augusta, GA to be closer my two grown sons, Jason and Joshua, and my new granddaughter, Emileigh. She is now 7 years old and in the second grade!
     
    I am a 20 year veteran teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Education from Augusta State University and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Technology from the University of Phoenix. I have taught in all grades 3-8. My favorite subjects are English and History. I love to travel, especially to historical places.
