    It is a great privilege to represent Coats-Erwin Middle School as Teacher of the Year.  This year is my fourth year teaching sixth grade English Language Arts. Before Coats-Erwin, I taught third and fourth grades at Erwin Elementary School, and kindergarten and first grade at Gentry Primary. 

         I live in Erwin with my husband, Paul, three sons, Colin, Christian and Channing, and Murphy, the Goldendoodle.  We are active in our local Scout pack, church, and other community organizations and missions.  
         My students will tell you that I am tough but fair and have high expectations because I want what is best for them, and our world....and if you don't enjoy reading, it's because you haven't found the right book!  My prayer and mission are to help my students view their education has an incredible gift full of opportunities, rather than imposition.
