I am excited to be a part of this community. I have taught elementary school for over 30 years. I started out in Charlotte-Mecklenburg before coming to Gaston County at Belmont Central Elementary. I went to UNC Charlotte for my undergraduate degree. I have my Masters from Appalachian State University. I am so happy about the curriculum and people at Community Public Charter! On a personal note, I live nearby in Belmont. I have three children and a golden retriever. My husband and I enjoy rooting for East Carolina and NC State, where two of our children go to college. I love listening to music and I enjoy reading biographies in my spare time.
