My career in education started over 25 years ago working with preschool age students. I recently retired from McDowell County Schools, where I served as the Exceptional Children’s Preschool Coordinator and NCPreK Contract Administrator.  As a student myself, I earned a degree in Human Resources from Gardner Webb and a Master’s Degree in B-K education from Lenoir Rhyne.  My husband and I love to fish, camp, kayak, travel and spend time with our two daughters and our first grandchild.

During my career, I have enjoyed having the honor of teaching children and building relationships with their families. I have watched many former preschool students throughout their school careers and witnessed the importance of Early Intervention and Early Childhood Education.  Early Childhood Education is truly the foundation of a lifelong learning career and I’m very excited to teach the next generation of Early Childhood Teachers and Leaders.
