Mrs. Branch is a native of Louisburg, NC, graduating from Louisburg High School. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from THE Winston-Salem State University. Prior to TLMS, she was a statistical computer programmer for research organizations for a number of years, but it was not by accident that she was led back to share her gift with the students of TLMS - her community, her family. This is Mrs. Branch's 5th year teaching and she continues to say: "The kids should always be top priority. Show them that they're not just a number. Show them that you care by building a relationship with them, because when they know BETTER, they'll do BETTER. And remember: You 'Enter to Learn, Depart to Serve' " (Winston-Salem State University motto)
