I started my teaching career at Southwest Middle in 2012 after receiving my master's at UNC-Pembroke. In my time at SWMS, I have enjoyed the students that have come and gone and am excited for the new ones to start. In May 2015, I had my first child and decided to stay home with her for that next school year. Now I am back to teaching at SWMS and am eager to meet the fresh faces of the 2016-2017 school year.   

I have been on the AVID site team for the past 3 years and love seeing the benefits of this school-wide implementation.



Originally from Pennsylvania and like many northerners, I have migrated to the south for warmer weather. My little family loves spending time at the beach and being outdoors for the majority of the year. As mentioned earlier, I graduated with my bachelor's and master's from UNCP and loved it!
