     Hello all!  I am so thrilled to be a teacher at Old Fort Elementary School!  I have been in the McDowell County School System since 1998.   I have had many roles throughout the years.  I have been a substitute, an assistant, a bus driver and a teacher.  In 2004, I obtained my degree from Mars Hill College and have taught grades first thru fourth since then.  Currently, I am back at Mars Hill working on my Master's degree.  I have been at Old Fort since 2017.   Before that, I was with the wonderful people of North Cove Elementary School.
     My family is changing so quickly.  I have a step-son who is married and blessed me with two grandchildren.  His brother recently had a son.  My daughter is  in college to become a teacher and recently got married.    Unfortunately, I am not allowed to have pets where I live, so I have gran-dogs.  My friends and family have dogs so, I get to play whenever I see them.  I attend Turkey Cove Baptist Church and love singing in the choir.
     McDowell County is a special place that truly cares about it's community, especially the kids.  I am so thankful to get the opportunity to teach and to be a part of so many lives.  I am blessed!
