I am excited to be a part of the WARRIOR family! As a native of Caldwell County, I attended Gamewell Elementary and Gamewell Middle. We moved my 8th-grade year and I began attending Hibriten. I have many friends from both ends of the county but my heart has always veered t0 the West end. I attended Appalachian State where I received a Bachelor's degree in Business Management, a Certificate in Education and a Master's degree in School Administration. I taught Math and Business at Freedom High School for two years before moving to Cape Coral, FL where I taught fourth-grade for eight years. Upon returning to NC, I taught 6th Grade ELA and Social Studies at Gamewell Middle for five years and then as the Middle Grades Social Studies Instructional Facilitator for CCS for five years. I am a PROUD member of this community and look forward to serving at West Caldwell.
