Bio

  I grew up in the beautiful mountains of Brevard, NC. I came from a family of educators & always knew that I wanted to be a teacher. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1977 with a Middle School Education Degree. This was a new major because it concentrated on the psychology of students this age, as well as academics. My concentration areas are Social Studies & Language Arts. Later, I attended West Georgia University & became certified as a Media Specialist. My latest adventure led me to study & live in Thailand. There, I became certified to teach English as a Second Language & taught adults. This has added to my interest to teach World Geography, History, & Culture, which will be my class this year. My students & I will be traveling to Asia, Africa, & Australia in class & learn how these places relate to our lives in North Carolina.

  I was married in 1978 & have 2 beautiful children TC (30 yrs. old) & Kimberlee (24 yrs. old). My husband's job transferred us a lot & we had the opportunity to live all over the southeast. Our moves entitled me to teach not only in NC, but Georgia, Virginia,& Alabama.I was fortunate to travel abroad & plan to use my adventures to introduce my students to the different countries' cultures.I feel my experiences teaching in many places has helped me in developing my curriculum for Social Studies & Language Arts.

  After 26 years, I finally, moved back to NC & enjoying my fiifth year at Clarkton School of Discovery. CSD is a unique school & provides a wonderful place for your child's educationI love to travel & in 2007 I went to school & taught English in Thailand. Asia was a new experience for me, compared to Europe & America. My other interests are reading, movies, plays, cooking, & writing. I am currently working on a novel & have been published in newspapers & teachers' resources. I have always incorporated writing in my classes & will be this year in our Social Studies class.This year our curriculm has changed & we will be studying World History. We start with the Reaissance in 1450 & will be covering all history until today. This is a great change & will prepare your child with a solid foundation for World History that they take their freshman year in High School Being a teacher is one of the greatest professions because it allows me to be a part of your child's life & help mold them into a young adult. I look forward to teaching your child this year & have planned a fun-filled curriculum..
