After graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne, I began teaching Pre-K for Hickory Public Schools. After 2 years, I began teaching at Sugar Loaf Elementary School and, 20 years later, I am still here. I am still here because I love Sugar Loaf and the community. I have taught kindergarten through second grade at Sugar Loaf.
I live in Mountain View (Hickory) with my husband John and our 3 children. William is a Junior at ACHS. Adam is a Freshman at Alexander Early College. Samantha is in 4th grade at Sugar Loaf. We also have two dogs: a Jack Russell named Buddy and a blue heeler named Ruby.
