Teaching was my dream as I grew up.  Not only did I want to teach, but I also wanted to teach in Western Watauga County.  I attended Cove Creek Elementary from Kindergarten through the eighth grade.  I left Cove Creek in 1995 to continue my journey at Watauga High School.  I graduated Watauga High School in 1999.  I am a true product of the Watauga County School System.  After graduating from WHS, I attended Appalachian State University, where I graduated in 2003 Summa Cum Laude as the Valedictorian of my class.  I live in Fleetwood, NC with my husband, Gary, our precious little girl, Camaline-- we call her Calie--and cat, Oreo.  I have three step children- Amberly (a Sophmore), Heather, and Donovan.  I am a firm believer that children can do anything they set their minds to.  After all, I am living my childhood dream!!
