Of my 16 years in education,1 year was served in Prince Edward County as a teacher of students with Emotional Disabilities. The other 15 years of her career have been in Chesterfield County Public Schools. During my time in Chesterfield, I have served as a teacher of students with Emotional disabilities, Specific Learning disabilities, Autism, Intellectual disabilities, and physical impairments. I have also served as the Coordinator of the Intensive Day Program for students with severe emotional and mental impairments. Most recently I served as the Associate Principal at Falling Creek Elementary.
I am the dedicated wife to my husband, Horace and the “Mommy” of my 7 year old daughter, Christina. I love dogs and have a Yorkie who thinks she’s a person.
I always strive to guide the youth I encounter on the trail of becoming strong citizens of great character. Partnering with parents in providing their child with the most effective and positive educational experience is my mission. I have a love for children and find happiness in doing for others. I am thrilled to be a part of the Salem Church Elementary community. Salem has a rich history of phenomenal students, teachers, and families and I am proud to be a “STAR”!
