Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching since 1993; I taught seventh-grade social studies at Lexington Middle before moving to Pleasant Hill Middle in 2011. I am excited to be at Beechwood Middle School and serve as the social studies department chair. I have my degree in middle grades education from UNC-Chapel Hill, with concentrations in social studies and language arts. I also have National Board Certification in Social Studies-History and am endorsed in Gifted and Talented Education.
My family is very important to me. I have a daughter who has been studying political science at USC and is a new mom to my first grandchild. I am over the moon with being her Nani! My son is a senior at LHS this year and I am starting to get used to my "baby" getting ready to leave the nest. My hobbies include playing board games, traveling, reading, and watching movies. I truly love teaching and am looking forward to this year!
