Degrees and Certifications:


I am indeed blessed to have the opportunity to enrich the life of your child.  I am a Sampson County native. My husband, Shawn, graduated from Lakewood.  We have two sons, Brett and Daniel.   I obtained my Bachelor of Science from East Carolina University.  My areas of certification include K-6 in all subject areas, 6-9 English Language Arts, and K-12 reading, and this journey began in 1997 at Salemburg Elementary.  During the years, I have been blessed to receive Teacher of the Year from Clement and Midway Middle, runner-up for Best Elementary Teacher in Cumberland County, and floored to have a former middle school student write an essay that was selected as a winner.  His essay made me the recipient of The Best Mannered Teacher in Cumberland County by the National League of Junior Cotillion in 2011. Performance Ford of Clinton blessed me as the recipient of Sampson County Schools Performance Ford Teacher of the Year in 2019.  WOW! All of this has been made possible by my Lord Jesus Christ.  I am looking forward to this new chapter as we work together for an excellent school year. May our little Leopards excel to heights beyond their wildest dreams!
