    I started my career in education as a Social Studies teacher and had the opportunity to serve at Carter High, Karns High and Central High School.  I taught mostly Geography and Government but also taught Economics, LanguageX and Leadership classes.  This will be my 9th year in administration.  I have served as an administrator at Central High, Gresham Middle School and Cedar Bluff Middle.  
    I am Mom to my 11 year old daughter, Madelyn.  I have an awesome family and great friends!!  I spend most of my time outside of school with them eating out, shopping, and adventuring!   
    Some say that you will never work a day in your life if you love what you do and I genuinely love what I do!  I am looking forward to an awesome 1st year at Northwest Middle!
