Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be your interim Media Specialist while Mrs. Ward is in Japan. Mabel has an amazing library! I received my undergraduate degree in Therapeutic Recreation before spending the next 18 years raising my six children. When my youngest started Kindergarten two years ago, I decided to go back to school for a masters degree in Library Science. I graduate from Appalachian State in May. I look forward to planning fun activities that connect to literature.
I have two sons who graduated from WHS, boy/girl twins currently sophomores and two daughters who attend Green Valley. My husband is a professor of Social Work. We have lived in many places including Utah, Virginia and Connecticut. We moved to Boone in 2014 and love living in these beautiful mountains.
I enjoy reading and going on fun adventures with my family. We plan a big road trip every summer -- my favorite was a 17 day camping trip through New England and Eastern Canada/Prince Edward Island.
I love Battle of the Books and would like to see more students from Mabel participate.
