Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my page! I grew up on my family farm in Chatham County, where we raised cows and chickens, and always had a plethora of pets running around. I attended NC State University and received my B.S. in Zoology. I completed my teaching certification at Austin Peay State University. I have 2 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 fish, and a snow leopard gecko (Echo, who you'll likely meet in my classroom). I have been a candy maker, a library technician, a gym manager, a jewelry repairer and salesperson, a veterinary technician, and an environmental educator (I worked multiple jobs throughout high school and college). I am now in my 11th year of teaching. I LOVE science, and hope that my enthusiasim will be contagious! My goal is to see our public schools in North Carolina soar back to the top of the lists where we belong!
