I graduated from UNC-Charlotte and hold a 6-12 Science Certification. My Master's Degree in Special Education is from Kennesaw State, and my Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction is from Lincoln Memorial University. Additionally, I am certified in gifted instruction and ESOL. I have been teacher of the year at Marietta Middle School and held National Board Certification. Sewing, gardening, and spending time with family are my favorites!
