This is my twelfth year teaching, my seventh at Patriots STEM Elementary. I love being a teacher and wake up every morning looking forward to being with the students. Originally a Chicago girl, I have become a southern girl after being here for over 20 years. I live in Concord with my husband, John, two children (19 and 11), and three bonus (step) children (18, 14, and 11). We also have three dogs and a cat. My daughter is a college sophomore at Rowan Cabarrus Community College, studying nursing and has a Dunn Quarter horse named Durango. My son is a fifth grader here at Patriots and he loves Minecraft. My bonus children go to Stanly County Schools. I like photography, football, and am a faithful Cubs fan.
