Degrees and Certifications:
I have a Bachelors in Spanish Education From UNCC Charlotte and a Masters in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University. I have State AIG certification and I am National Board Certified.
I am beginning my 26 year of teaching. I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I majored in Spanish. I taught Spanish for 4 years at Maiden Elementary while continuing my education and receiving my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University. I enjoy travel, the beach, spending time with friends and family, and shopping. I am married to Jason and we have 2 children named Isaiah (1st grade) and Ari (Kindergarten). They keep me very busy. We live in Maiden and attend First Baptist Church. I coached cheerleading for MANY years and retired so I could enjoy watching my own kids participate in sports. Isaiah loves wrestling and Ari cheers for Cheer Energry All-Stars
Some of my favorites include: Reese's cups, Outback, Krispy Kreme, UNC Tarheels, San Francisco 49ers, ther color red, Target, massages, naps, and sunny weather.
