• Welcome to Business, Finance and Information Technology!


    I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am from Huntington, WV, where I went to school and eventually to college. I graduated from Marshall University (Go Herd!) with a Bachelors Degree in Education K-8 Multisubject. During my college years, I worked at many different positions in education. I was a director at a Boys and Girls Club and also a special needs counselor at a residential group home. 

    After graduation, I decided to leave WV to be closer to the ocean. I began working in a licensed and accredited learning center and eventually moved into management. With this, I was trained on the business side and truly enjoyed it. After a few years, I was offered a position teaching middle school language arts. I found that while I loved to read, I loved computers and business more. I taught 9 more years in Gates County and taught keyboarding, word processing and tutored in computer skills. 

    In 2007, I accepted a position at Moyock Middle School. There, I taught many different business courses, from Keyboarding to Careers and Business Education. I also became the FBLA Adviser. I watched the students fall in love with business and compete and succeed. I was asked to become the NC FBLA State Middle Level Board Member. I am currently in my second term as that.

    During the time I was at MMS, I taught college level Keyboarding, Word Processing and Advanced Word Processing at a private college. I am now focusing on just teaching your student.

    I am excited about being at JP Knapp. It is opening up a new level of teaching for me. I am also happy to be the adviser for FBLA at JPK. If you ever have a question, please send me an email.
