CCS Work History 
I started my career at Kings Mountain High School in 2008 teaching 12th grade. I worked there for about a year and a half before moving to Burns High. I have taught 12th grade at Burns for about five years now. It is now my second home, and I love my teaching career! 

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. 

My family is amazing! I have a little girl who will soon be four years of age, and a little boy, who just turned one. My husband and I enjoy our small town life in Polkville. We enjoy being part of our wonderful church family at Big Spring Baptist, as well as the community. 

What do you like best about your school/work location? 
I love the location of Burns. It isn't far from home, and the staff members are amazing! I have met some lifelong friends at Burns, who are now like family. We are a very close staff, and we care about each and every person at Burns. 

If you could give students one piece of advice, what would it be and why? 
Put God first in everything you do, and you will always be alright.

Why is Cleveland County Schools special to you? 
Cleveland County Schools is very special to me because I was given the opportunity to begin as a lateral-entry teacher and achieve my dream of becoming a teacher, and for that I am very grateful! I was new to the county; they took me in and helped me to achieve something great. As a teacher, I only hope that I can help students realize that they can achieve greatness as well!
