Welcome back to Southeast Middle School and the Pharaohs team! I have been at Southeast since its doors opened in 1998. My educational background includes three degrees from UNCG, the most recent being a Master's degree in Middle Grades Education. I have three adult children, graduates of Appalachian, UNC-Wilmington, and UNC-Chapel Hill. I enjoy most types of music, and I play viola in the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra. I love to read. Sometimes I get myself into trouble because I have a really hard time putting a good book down before I finish it! That makes me a "bibliophile," a word you'll learn this year!
