About Me:

I am a native of Charlotte, an East Mecklenburg S.H. graduate, a UNC Charlotte graduate for my BA, and a UNF graduate for my MA. As an undergraduate, I also attended Kingston University in London England to study history. I've taught throughout North Carolina (Raleigh, Fayetteville, Charlotte), across the United States (NC, FL, CA), and overseas in Spain.  I have had the unique privilege to teach a wide variety of students ranging from Kindergarten to college across our wonderful country and to military families overseas. I look forward to an amazing school year here at CCG!
