I am originally from Mansfield/Cleveland Ohio. I am a graduate of Ashland University in Ashland Ohio. My husband and I moved to North Carolina in July 2000. My career in education started in the Cleveland Charter Schools in 1997. I have taught and worked with elementary students for most of my teaching career.
