I am very glad to be part of the faculty at Cane Creek Middle School where I began my teaching career in 2003 as a part-time substitute/interim teacher. This is my eleventh year teaching ELA full time and I love to invest in students. They are our future! 
      Our family is my greatest gift, so let me tell you a bit about each one.

(From left to right)
Weston, our youngest son (22) is a 2020  graduate of University of Tennessee. He is the Director of Style and Design for a virtual magazine, Nuance, and resides in Nashville, TN. Ashley, our oldest child (28) has been married to her high school sweetheart, Steven, for five years, resides in Charlotte and had a "beautiful baby boy", Elias, this past December. We are crazy grandparents now!  Ashley works for Alight Human Resources and Steven is the Choral Director at Forestview HS in Gastonia. Tyler, our middle son (25), works in sales/direct marketing.  We love having him nearby. Steve, my beloved husband of 31 years, works at Eaton Corp in Arden and leads a small group with our church. We are blessed in many ways. 
     We feel like natives to Asheville since we have lived here 30 years!  We are involved with our church and community, and take advantage of opportunities to get outdoors for walking, hiking, and biking. 

    It's going to be a great year!  I'm committed to helping your child reach their fullest potential.  Feel free to contact me by email ( with questions or concerns.
Thank you!
