I grew up in the Hiddenite Community and  attended Hiddenite Elementary, East Jr. High, and ACHS.  I attended CVCC and graduated from UNC Charlottle.  I worked in the banking industry for several years before going back to school.   I attended the NC Teach program at Lenoir-Rhyne and began my teaching career with Alexander County Schools, first at East and now here at West.  I have taught 6th and 7th grade Math for 15 years.  This is my first year in the CTE field where I will be teaching Business, Finance and Information Technology classes.  I now live in the Bethlehem community and  I am married and have 2 children.  My oldest child, Mattie, is a senior at ACHS.  My youngest child, Karlee, is in the 7th grade here at West.
