I was homeschooled for all of my elementary and high school years. After graduation, I earned an Associate of Arts degree at Gaston College. Many years later I attended Belmont Abbey College, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I was born and raised in Gaston County. Stanley, NC is home to me. I have three sisters and two brothers. My nieces & nephews are my world; any of my free time is spent with them. Before I became a teacher, I worked for Atrium Healthcare as a unit secretary/monitor tech/fixer of all things(I am basically a multi-tasking ninja) for 10 years. I still work there occasionally because I love it so much.
