Why I became an educator
I have always loved to read. My love of reading allowed me to have a passion for teaching others to read. After working with students and teachers in the Academic Facilitator role I quickly realized I have the passion to lead in a larger capacity as an administrator.
Favorite Place in Catawba County
My favorite place in Catawba County is downtown Hickory. We like to walk around visiting the local shops as well as trying new restaurants. One of our favorite parks is close by-Glen Hilton Park. We like to walk on the boardwalk to see the animals and have picnics as a family.
