Hi! I'm so excited to be at Pumpkin Center Primary this year! I have taught for 18 years and I currently teach 1st grade.  I live in Lincolnton with my husband and my two daughters.  We enjoy traveling, playing softball, and having family movie night!  I graduated from Appalachian State University with my Masters in Elementary Education.  I also received my National Board Certification in 2004.  Parents feel free to contact me through my school email.  I look forward to an exciting year!
