    Welcome Challenger's Team  2015-2016
    Welcome to Jefferson Middle School!  Sixth grade is such an exciting year and we are looking forward to meeting everyone!  We hope to see you at our Open House on Tuesday, August 18th.
    I am very lucky to teach both Math and Social Studies, two of my favorite subjects.   I started my teaching career at Jefferson Elementary as a Primary Reading Teacher in 2003, I have been at TJMS since 2006.
    I graduated from UNC-G with a bachelors in Political Science and then went to work for USAirways.   I worked there for 15 years and decided to change careers.   I attended Salem College and earned my Masters  in Education and am certified to teach all subjects in kindergarten through sixth grade, and all levels of middle school math.  I have always loved math, politics and any kind of history!
    I am married and have 3 children.  My oldest daughter just graduated from UNC Chapel Hill and has her first job.  My son is a rising Junior  at Appalachian.  My youngest daughter will be a Junior at Reagan High School this fall!  All three of my children attended TJMS.  Needless to say, I think Jefferson is the BEST middle school in the county. 
    I am looking forward to a great year, feel free to contact me at any time throughout the year if you have any concerns about your child.  We want to make his/her time here as positive and productive as possible.
