Greetings!  Thank you for visiting my website to learn a bit about me and my ELA classes. 

I am a North Carolina native who grew up outside of Charlotte.  Currently, I live way out in the sticks in the Broad River District of Black Mountain.  I graduated from North Carolina State University and have been teaching in NC for 20 years.  For the past 20 years, I have taught elementary, middle, and high school students.  This is my first year at Cane Creek Middle School and I am super excited to return to middle school.  For the past 5 years, I have taught at AC Reynolds High School.

When I am not teaching I often spend time hiking with my dog.  Gardening takes up a great deal of my time in the summer and I have 23 quarts of canned tomatoes from this year's garden to prove it!  Reading for pleasure is a passion of mine, so much so, that I have been a member of the Black Mountain Book Club for the past 10 years!  That's a lot of books considering we meet each to discuss fiction and an occasional non-fiction book.  Although I am not a good cook, I do enjoy baking cakes, cookies, and pies.  My husband and I also enjoy traveling and visiting museums.
