Degrees and Certifications:
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!!
