This is my eleventh year teaching here at Balls Creek. Being a teacher has been a goal of mine since I was in high school and I am blessed to have been able to fulfill my dream. I believe that all students can learn and that education and hard work are two of the most important keys to success.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, hiking, mountain climbing, bicycling, walking, listening to music and doing anything outdoors. One of my goals is to hike/climb to the highest point of all 50 states! So far I have climbed to the top of 27 states and Washington DC. The most challenging hike/climb so far was on an 11.5 mile round-trip trail called the Knife's Edge to the top of Mt. Katahdin, Maine (5,269 ft. above sea level). The easiest was walking about 50 feet from my car to the top of Britton Hill Florida (345ft above sea level).
