I am a lifelong learner that has worked in public schools and post-secondary schools for the last 35 years. My love is working with adolescent and adult learners in the areas of science and math. I began my career teaching high school chemistry and physics in upstate New York. After our move to NC, I continued teaching and started coaching at EA Laney High School.

Looking to make more of a difference, I pursued my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership to become a public school principal. I quickly became a principal, working at all 3 levels, with most of my 23 years in middle schools. As I finished my career as a principal, I secured a teaching position in the Adult High School and GED programs part-time. Currently, I work as an AHS teacher and CASAS (GED) administrator with Cape Fear Community College.
