My Mission...

as a teacher is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and support students by providing a safe, secure and loving environment to educate them socially, emotionally, and cognitively so they can continue to build a foundation for life-long learning.

My Family

I have a daughter, Chelsea, who graduated from Brevard High School, a brand new puppy, Gracie Margaret, and two kitties, Olivia and Minnie. Although I have lived in the mountains of North Carolina for a while, I was born in New York and have lived in Florida and Alaska. Ask me about my moose nugget earrings!

I'm often asked on the first day of school, "Why does history matter?" Showing this short video often convinces students why it is important to learn about the past. Please watch it and see if you agree.
