This year marks my 8th year as a Triton Hawk and 11th year as an educator in North Carolina. We are in the midst of events we will one day read about in history textbooks, and though we all know there will be challenges, I am eager to do what I love. I have worked in a variety of fields throughout my life, but teaching young people the absolute importance of historical events and the ways in which those events shape our lives today has been the most rewarding of all. I hope we have a wonderful year together exploring the past, connecting to the present, and preparing for the future.
Outside of school, I am a proud mother to a 7 year old, 3 year old, and 1 year old. My husband also works here, at Triton, in the CTE Department. Needless to say, we take pride in our school and community. We love spending time together trying to keep up with our wild children, though at times they seem to run circles around us. This year has definitely been tough on our family. We are hopeful that this new school year will bring all of our households happier days ahead.
