     Teacher Bio:  I'm a graduate of Marshall University in Huntington, WV.  I have a BA degree in Elementary Education K-6 and a minor in Physically Handicapped and Health Impaired K-12.  I  also completed a 2 year AIG licensure program through WSFCS. I'm a widow and have 2 grown children.  My daughter, Sarah, is a graduate of NC State University where she received degrees in microbiology and biological sciences.   She received her DPM from Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.  She completed her surgical residency in Miami, FL.  My son, Ben, graduated from Appalachian State University with an undergraduate degree in economics and an MBA in Business Analytics. He lives and works in Charlotte.  My hobbies are reading, pilates, yoga, knitting, cross stitch, flower gardening, and watching college sports. I love kids, coffee, chocolate, giraffes, and I collect spoons and pencils.
