A Granville County native, I went to South Granville. After high school, I received a BS in Secondary English Education from Appalachian State University in 1999 and started teaching at J. F. Webb High School in Oxford, NC. I then received my National Boards Certification in 2002 in Young Adult English Language Arts, and my Masters in Education, with a concentration in Literacy, from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2008. In 2008, I became the librarian for Webb. I received my Masters in Library Science in 2012 from East Carolina University. I came to Falls Lake Academy in the fall of 2014 to teach computer education and be our librarian. I have a sweet husband, a vivacious seven-year-old daughter, and a cat who tolerates my presence. I love reading, writing, computers, and running, but mostly, spending time with my family. I love being a Firebird!
