Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Hickory, NC and was once a student here at Arndt Middle School! I graduated from Saint Stephens before going on to get my Middle Grades Education degree from Appalachian State (go Apps!) with concentrations in both ELA and science. It was in the education program that I met my husband, Nakota, who is now a teacher and coach at River Bend Middle School. This past October Nakota and I had our first son, Milo, who is one of our greatest blessings...(and challenges). While I have had a great two and a half years teaching 7th grade science at Liberty Middle School in Burke County, it feels wonderful to be welcomed back as a Redskin once again!!
