My daughter Meagan Graduated from Cox Mill 6 years ago and lives in Charlotte. I have one dog named Zoey who is 8 1/2 years old and 1 cat named Zelda who is 4 years old.I taught K-5 SLD in Florida for one year before moving up here to Concord. I then stayed home with Matthew and Meagan until Meagan was in 3rd grade. I went back to work as a Third Grade teacher at Beverly Hills for one year before moving to Pitts School Road Elementary School in 2005 when it opened. I taught 4th Grade for 8 years before moving to 5th Grade.I am so excited to be back in 4th Grade! This is going to be a fantastic year filled with wonderful opportunities to learn as we explore Math and Science.

One of my favorite things to do is to collect shells while walking on the beach. I also enjoy swimming. I prefer the pool much more than the Gulf or Ocean after having been stung by a stingray. That was not a fun thing to experience.
