I am excited to start my 12th year teaching!  Previously I taught 3rd grade here at Buies Creek Elementary and before that I taught 6th grade at Highland Middle School, 4th grade at South Harnett Elementary, and one year as a Universal Pre-Kindergarten teacher in New York.

I moved to North Carolina from New York where I grew up and attended college. I now call Fuquay Varina home. I am married and have two children. My daughter and son are the light of my life and I am always letting my students see pictures of them.

In high school and college, I was a competitive swimmer. I was also my team captain for two years. That leadership role and demand of time really helped me to use my time effectively. I feel as though that may be one of best things I teach my students that carries through to their adult life.
