I have been teaching since 2004. After student teaching and graduating from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, I moved to Ft. Mohave, Arizona and taught high school English there before moving to North Carolina. I spent ten years in CMS, and 2017 has brought me to Northwest Cabarrus High School. My passion for being an English teacher stems from a love for language, literature, education, and being around young people. Maintaining a wellness lifestyle is highly important to me, and I have applied my addiction with runing to coaching track and cross country at previous schools. I have earned a Master's in Reading Education from UNC Charlotte and National Board Certificaton in English Language Arts.
