Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Cabarrus County. I am a graduate of Central Cabarrus High School and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. After completing my student teaching at MPHS in 2001, I was fortunate enough to be offered a teaching position. I have been a Mount Pleasant Tiger ever since! When I am not teaching, I love to read, travel, and spend time with my family. I have three daughters. My oldest is a senior at MPHS. My twins attend Mount Pleasant Middle School. Go Tigers!!
