I have been a public school teacher for 33 years; sharing my experience between two beautiful states, North and South Carolina. Over the course of my career, I have taught Chorus, Drama, Guitar, General Music, Biology, Algebra, Middle School Math and Science. I have National Board Certification in addition to certifications in all the above areas plus Academically Gifted Education. As you might be able to surmise, I consider myself to be a "life-long learner" and I hope that I can inspire my students to be the same.
Because of my fine arts background, I like to be creative in the classroom. My focus is child-centered and I love to incorporate technology as much as possible.
Over my career, I have received several honors...but I guess the greatest honor for me is simply to teach. I have been so blessed to have chosen a career that has been so rewarding and enjoyable.
My foundational education was at Appalachian State and Wake Forest Universities. Over the course of decades, I have taken classes from an abundance of educational institutions which I will not attempt to list! (smile)
