I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from East Carolina University with a strong concentration in Sociology. It only took me 20 years to complete this degree as I earned a CNA I & II in the years stretching between, then studied for my RN as well but chose teaching over that license. I am licensed to teach Kindergarten through 6th grade and thus far have been called to concentrate in K-2.


I began teaching preschool and Pre K in 2006 in Charlotte, NC  then earned Teacher of the Year in Las Vegas, Nevada. My first licensed position began in 2011 whereas I was teaching Kindergarten for the first 4 years of my teaching career. My true love of teaching tiny people  has been challenged with a switch to 2nd grade this past year. I loved the 2nd grade curriculum and ended the year fabulously! But now, back at home in KINDERGARTEN~ Whoo Hoooooo!


I am proud to be one of the oldest "young" teachers in Wilson county. I am a grandmother of 4 (about to be 5) and the mommy of a true Special Needs child myself. I am thankful for all that my own child teaches me everyday to recognize and help struggling kids. I recently married my high school sweetheart~ and only had to wait 29 YEARS to do it.

I feel very blessed to be back in a classroom after having to leave my teaching position due to my daughter's severe health issues I loved Second grade and those student's successes~ but back in my favorite place Kindergarten! I am enjoying the families and children at Margaret Hearne as well as the beautiful building.
