Welcome to 8th grade English Language Arts on the Piedmont Team!  The 2020-21 school year will be my fifth year at Enka Middle School and I LOVE being a JET!   I look forward to my 18th year of teaching ELA in North Carolina!   My first thirteen years were spent at Canton Middle School in Haywood County.  

I live in Candler with my husband, Max, and son, Chase.   I proudly earned my Master's Degree in teaching from Western Carolina University- GO CATS!   I also hold a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from the University of South Florida in Tampa.  

 Long ago, in a galaxy not so far, far away (before marriage), I played fast-pitch softball in college (South Florida) and professionally for two years with the Women's Pro Fast-Pitch League (Georgia Pride).   I've spent many years playing and coaching softball. Last year, I helped coach our own Sugar Jets team!

        What you need to know before you begin your 8th grade year is that you are in for an amazing learning experience with the PIEDMONT team!
  As you can expect, this year will be very different, but we will learn to grow together.  Change is inevitable, but growth is optional.  I'm excited to help my students learn new information about language to become critical readers and fluent writers.
