    This photo symbolizes hard work for me. I've been regularly lap swimming now since August 2020. My commitment to swim at least 4x a week explains why I'm not typically at school after hours as I work hard to get to Elizabeth City for the 4:00 reserved swim time. Email is the best way to reach me.  
    Classroom: F-05, Planning is 4th Bell from 1:40 to 3:00 second semester.   
    Phone #:  252-453-0014, ext. 3087

    Greetings!  I have been teaching English language arts at Currituck County High School since January 1995.  A native Tar Heel, I attended and graduated from JH Rose in Greenville, NC.  From there,  I completed three years of college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before joining Youth With A Mission and traveling with this non-profit international missions organization for two and a half years.  I chose to finish my undergraduate work at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in English and Social Studies Education in December 1994.  Since that time, I have added state AIG licensure, and I  successfully renewed my National Board Certification in Adolescent Young Adult/English Language Arts---the second time in December 2021. Most recently, I am pursuing my Master's in English with a focus in Rhetoric and Composition through online coureses at East Carolina University.  In addition to my love of teaching, I enjoy international traveling and have visited England, Germany, Poland, Israel, China, Uruguay and Brazil.  My therapy is lap swimming at the YMCA and in warmer weather, I kayak.  Free time is not something I have too much of as I live and care for my elderly parents, but when I do have a few minutes, I write, read, cook, and enjoy the company of my family.  I look forward to working with you this year for a successful journey through English language arts.
