I am in my fifth year as an Assistant Principal with Davidson County Schools and this is my 25th year in Education. I graduated from Waynesburg University with a B.A. in History with a secondary education certification. I then earned an M.A. in School Administration licensure from Gardner–Webb University. I was a classroom teacher for twenty years before transitioning to the administration side of education. My educational career began in 1994 as a Social Studies teacher and coach in South Florida at Western High School in Davie. I moved to North Carolina in 2001 and taught Social Studies and coached here at North Davidson High School prior to becoming an Assistant Principal at West Davidson High School the last four years. I am very proud to return home to again be a North Davidson Black Knight.
I am a Davidson County native, having received my high school diploma from Central Davidson High School. Upon the completion of my secondary education, I chose to attend High Point University. It is from HPU that I received my undergraduate degree in Biology. I then chose to enter the education field and it is here where I have spent the last 18 years. I returned to High Point to earn my certification in education and I received a Masters Degree in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University. I am now entering my 19th year in education, with the previous 18 spent as a classroom teacher of earth science, physical science, biology, anatomy and physiology, and AP biology. During my time as a classroom teacher I also served as a coach for baseball, football, wrestling, and women's tennis.
