I graduated from Western Carolina University with a degree in Birth-Kindergarten education. I continued my education earning graduate credits in Special Education from both Western Carolina and Appalachian State Universities. This is my 16th year teaching. I taught for over seven years at a private childcare and learning center. This is my ninth year at Nebo Elementary School. My hobbies include reading and being part of a wonderful book club for the last 3 years. My all time favorite books are the Harry Potter books. I enjoy camping with my family and our 2 huskies.
