I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was in elementary school. I grew up in Beaufort and graduated from East Carteret High School. I then went on to East Carolina University and earned a degree in elementary education. I have also earned National Board Certification. I taught for seven years at White Oak Elementary School in Cape Carteret and have been at MCPS for twenty-two years.  I am looking forward to teaching at A Sea of Learning.​​

"Even after 30 years in the classroom, I am energetic and passionate about teaching.  I hope that my love for learning is contagious.  I think we’ll have lots in common:  I’m a Carteret County native with salt water in my veins.  You’ll most often catch me on or near the water with a book in my hand.  I look forward to sharing time with you, as well.  I’m onboard for A Sea Of Learning, so batten down the hatches. Let’s make waves and rock the boat!  All hands on deck for the best school year ever!"


P.E. Teacher

"I grew up and went to school here in Carteret County. I could not be more excited to be a part of the education of the next generation of students here.  I graduated from West Carteret High School in 2016 and attended the University of Mount Olive (UMO) as a part of the math and education departments thereafter. I worked at UMO as a remedial teacher, tutor, and peer mentor for four years. After graduating from UMO in 2020 I returned to Newport and was lucky enough to get a job at Newport Middle school as a remediation math specialist for sixth through eighth grade students. I feel so fortunate to be joining A Sea of Learning this year as the math and science teacher for sixth grade. I believe all students have the capacity for amazing things, I cannot wait to see what your students will achieve."
