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 eighth 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 28 years, works at Eaton Corp in Arden and leads a small group with our church. Weston, our youngest son, is a sophomore and excited about being an RA at University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Tyler just graduated from AppState.
He is a fantastic waiter at Story Street Grille in Blowing Rock and plans to move out West soon.
     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 student reach their fullest potential.  Feel free to contact me by email ( with questions or concerns. Thank you!
