Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida. And, yes, I did my stint as a Disney World employee! I grew up in a large family with 4 sisters and a twin brother. My husband, Jim, and I have raised two wonderful children- Amy and Michael. They both live in the area and we are lucky to see them often. We love to travel and attend Panthers' games. I am an avid Florida Seminoles' football fan. We live in the Denver area.
We moved briefly to Buffalo, NY (my husband's hometown) before moving to High Point, NC. We moved to the Mooresville area where I taught for several years. I have been at SFES for 16 years. I love working at Sherrills Ford! Teaching is my passion and I love watching children explore their world and when they have the AHA! moment, it is priceless.
I graduated from Florida Southern College with my degree in early childhood and elementary education. I completed my Master's Degree in Emotionally Handicapped Education at the University of Central Florida. I completed my certification in SLD after moving to NC. I have completed and received my National Board Certification.
My hobbies are reading, spending time with my family and friends, and shopping!
