Degrees and Certifications:
I am the media coordinator at Claremont Elementary School. I began teaching in 1999 at this fantastic school where the students and faculty LOVE to read and use technology! I attended Newton-Conover High School and after graduation I enrolled in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 1997 with my BA Degree in Sociology. I also attended Appalachian State University were I received my Master's Degree in Library Science and Technology in 1999. In 2003, I earned National Board Certification in Library Media/Early Childhood through Young Adult which I renewed in 2013. In 2004, I also became an active member of Delta Kappa Gamma - Nu Chapter, an honor society for educators around the world. I am married and have two children who keep me very busy with Trail Life, American Heritage Girls, piano lessons, karate, AWANA, choir, band and WRESTLING. I enjoy Appalachian football, Tarheel basketball, the beach (not the ocean or the sand), Disney World and of course spending time with my family!
