Degrees and Certifications:
I am orginally from Concord, North Carolina where I graduated from Northwest Cabarrus High School in 1994. I attended Appalachian State University and received a B.S. in Secondary Mathematics Education. Upon graduating, I taught Algebra II at Concord High School during the 1998-1999 school year. I moved to Hickory in 1999 and began teaching 8th grade math at Arndt. I really enjoyed teaching middle school students, so I returned to ASU and graduated with a M.A. in Middle Grades Math Education in 2002.
I am married to another Appalachian State grad, and we have one son. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being involved at my church, and running with my running group.
