Friends say I was meant to be a teacher. I have been teaching since 1989 which reflects my name Rockin Resources. My students grab my heart every day and my passion is to create engaging lessons for my them. Rockin Resources was created from a promise to my students to always find ways to motivate them to learn! I know I've been successful when they tell me they enjoy learning in my class!
I believe in teaching balanced literacy as well as meeting the needs of individual students. I make my lessons creative and motivational so that my students are excited to walk in my door each morning!

I stay active by being a mom and teacher of 48 amazing children. I have two children of my own and the rest of them live under my school roof. My daughter is a sophomore at UNCW and my son is busy with sports as a freshman in high school. Needless to say, I never slow down! I can't forget my husband who often says, "It is time to turn off that mind!"
