     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.  I have been at Old Fort for almost a year, teaching second grade.   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 a grandchild.  He is four years old and keeps me smiling.  My daughter is a junior in college and will be getting married next year.  Unfortunately, I am not allowed to have pets where I live, so I have grandogs.  My son and my daughter both 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!
