My professional education includes a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from UNCG, a Masters in Reading Education (grades k-12) from Appalachian State University, a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from Gardner-Webb University and a Master's add-on licensure from Gardner Webb University.
I believe that all children can learn and grow. At our school, teachers will put the needs of students first and be committed to helping each child reach their full potential. On a personal note, I am married and have 4 young children. I am involved in church and love my pets, shopping, spending time with family and reading.
