Hello Students and Families,

            I am very excited to be a part of the wonderful family of teachers here at NBMS.  I look forward to spending time with my students this year as we go on a learning journey to understand the amazing world we live in.  I foster an engaging classroom where a student's curiosity helps fuel the desire to learn science.  
             I obtained my B.S. at the University of North Carolina Wilmington in Marine Biology/Chemistry and my Masters of Science at Oregon State University in Science Education.  During my years in college I developed a deep passion for education. I was a leader at UNCW's Marine Quest and a part of OSU's SMILE (Science and Math Investigative Learning Experiences) program.  
            Before coming to NBMS, I enjoyed teaching and developing educational programs about space, oceans, and rocks at the Colburn Earth Science Museum in Asheville.  I also briefly taught my favorite subjects at a high school in Oregon: Marine Biology, Oceanography, and Evolution.
            I live in Weaverville with my family.  I enjoy spending time with my husband and my awesome, wonderful, soccer playing, nature loving children: Oceanstar, Rainesong, Laykesnow, Skyelily, and Meadowrose.  All of which now attend or did attend schools in the NB school district.
