I am a lifelong resident of Davidson County.  I was first a working graphic artist with an Associate's in Applied Science Degree in Commercial Graphics.  Later, I pursued a career in education due to my passion for supporting struggling readers.  I received my Elementary Education Degree K-6 from Catawba College and my Master of Arts Degree in Reading Education K-12 from Appalachian State University.  I have been fortunate to teach at Southmont Elementary School since its opening in 2009! 

"Some people there are who, being grown; forget the horrible task of learning to read.  It is perhaps the greatest single effort that the human undertakes, and he must do it as a child."
