I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education majoring in English. My Master's degree in Early Childhood Education was earned from Piedmont College after several years and then I promptly added the Specialist's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont also.


I began my career at Cartersville Middle School teaching Language years for nine years.   I "retired" for several years to rear my two sons and also care for parents. In the '90's I worked part-time at a local daycare and began feeling I wanted to return to the classroom. After renewing my teaching certificate and adding the ESOL field, I returned to fulltime work in 2001 at Cartersville Primary School teaching children in the ESOL program.
