I am originally from Ohio, where I graduated in 2003 from Mount Union College with a degree in Middle Childhood Education (my master’s degree is from Western Carolina University in School Administration). A year later I moved here to North Carolina where I taught Language Arts for 8 years in the middle school, three of those years at PCCS. I have been a Challenge Foundation Fellow where I served as the assistant director on both the secondary campus and elementary campus and became your Elementary Director in the summer of 2013. I am thrilled to continue at PCCS as the director and I look forward to working with all of you; parents, students, families in the community, and our amazing teachers, and staff. As we all work together towards the same goal, this will be a great year!
