My Professional Passions & Strengths
- I am currently teaching Art at New Providence Elementary School. I am very blessed to have a career in which I get to create, teach and educate my students the advantages to the importance of art in our school. I feel I know I have one of the greatest benefits to why I teach and that is being able to celebrate with my student artists their goals and successes they reach throughout my art classes. I know I have helped guide each of my student artists to achieve many great accomplishments in life.
My Personal Passions
My husband, Chris, and I have recently celebrated 22 years of marriage and are the proud parents of George (19) Ryan (17) and Adreana (9). George is a sophomore at Mars Hill University, Ryan is a senior at River Bluff High School and Adreana is a fourth grader at New Providence Elementary. In my spare time, I enjoy watching our boys play lacrosse and keeping very busy playing with our daughter. I also love spending time with family and friends, baking, painting, reading and getting the chance to relax preferably on a beach somewhere.
