        I'm excited to be here and I am looking forward to helping students learn more about the world around them. I am originally from Central NY. Where I attended Onondaga Community College, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and University at Albany SUNY. I have taught 8th-grade science in NC for 5 years. I have just moved here from Western North Carolina. My husband is a High School Social Studies teacher and we have two young boys. Some of my favorite things to do include photography, reading, working on puzzles, and taking nature hikes.
