Some things about me:
I am a graduate of Mars Hill College. This is my fifth year at Pleasant Gardens Elementary School in fourth grade before that I was the Title One teacher at North Cove Elementary.  I have worked for McDowell County Schools for a little over thirteen years.

I have two sons both of which graduated from McDowell High School. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter. We love spending time outdoors and watching football!
