I am a native of southern California. I attended three universities (California State University, San Bernardino, NC State and California State University, Fullerton), before moving back to North Carolina in 2012. I love driving and enjoy long trips on Interstate 95, 77, 85, and 20. My favorite NBA team is the LA Lakers, NFL team Dallas Cowboys, and MLB team Angels.
I have a passion for the arts and love seeing the joy on the faces of students when they share the same emotion. Middle school is the perfect time for many students to learn art. They can explore their imaginations, creatively express their ideas, learn challenging techniques, and acquire problem solving and critical thinking skills.
