After graduating from High Point University, I began my teaching career at Trinity High School, in 1992. I then spent seven years at home, raising my two youngest children. In 2006, I decided to return to teaching in the area of Exceptional Children at Uwharrie Middle School. During the seven years of working with special education students, I attained my National Board Certification. In 2013, I reentered the regular education setting, at UMS teaching 8th grade ELA for three years. In 2016, I began my dream job of teaching at RECHS. I knew this was a unique opportunity not only for myself but for my children. Two of which graduated from RECHS. My goal is to continue on the path of knowledge and leadership so that I may pass these qualities on to my students.
