  • I completed the Teacher Licensure program at University of North Carolina Asheville in 2008.
  • My 10 years of teaching experience includes social studies, language arts, and reading remediation for 6th and 7th graders.
  • I have coached the VSMS Track & Field team for 6 years, and the Battle of the Books team for 10 years.
