Hello! I have been a teacher for over 20 years beginning my teaching career in third grade at Hudson Elementary for one year. The rest of my career has been at Granite Falls Elementary in fifth grade. I love teaching science and math to fifth graders and watching them grow and get excited about learning. My expectations and goals are high, but I love and care for each student that walks through my classroom door.
I have been married to my husband, Ken, over 35 years and have two sons. We moved our family from New Jersey to Hickory in 1993. My main hobby is knitting from everything to buying alpaca fleece from a local farmer to spinning the fleece to create my own yarn. I also enjoy traveling and nature photography, visiting Jasper, Canada was one of my favorite destinations so far!!
