Welcome Class of 2022!
I am entering my eighth year of teaching at Lincolnton Middle School, and I can't imagine being anywhere else. I bleed Black and Gold! I was a student of Lincoln County Schools and earned my high school diploma from Lincolnton High School-Go Wolves! I graduated from Gardner-Webb University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Science, and earned my Graduate Certificate for Teaching Middle School Social Studies Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. After four years of teaching English Language Arts, I am thrilled to be back in Social Studies teaching United States History with a concentration in North Carolina History.
When I am not teaching, I love to follow sports! I am a huge fan of college football (SEC) and basketball (UNC). I am die-hard Carolina Panther fan and have been since they were awarded the franchise in 1993. In addition, I love to spend time with my family, friends and most importantly my husband, Shaun, and our two dogs, Trudy and Ellie plus our 19-year-old cat Jack. I also love to hike, bike and craft with my friends. Plus, coloring has grown to become one of my favorite ways to enjoy the silence.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic school year. You should expect to be challenged in my class, be held to high expectations, and be kind to one another.
