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 parttime substitute/interim teacher. This is my ninth year teaching ELA and I am thrilled to be with our excellent 8th grade staff.  
     It's hard to believe that my children are as old as they are! Some like to remind me that we are "empty nesters".  Our family is my greatest gift, so let me tell you a bit about each one.

Steven Austin, our "son-in-love" is married to his high-school sweetheart ,our daughter, Ashley. Both are graduates of App State and have challenging careers in the Charlotte area.Steve, my beloved husband of 29 years, works at Eaton Corp in Arden and leads a small group with our church. Weston, our youngest son, is a junior and excited about getting into his major business courses at University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Tyler, also a graduate of ASU, is working in Blowing Rock for the present time. 
     We are active in our church and are big supporters of WyldLife/Young Life of Buncombe County (  We enjoy a variety of activities outside of work and think Asheville is the place to be! 

    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!
