Hello Students and Families,

     Born and raised in New Bern, I recently moved back from central Florida where I lived for almost 20 years with my family. It’s great to be back to my old stomping ground and reestablish my roots. I was married for 25 years and have two boys, one of which came along with me. Benton (20) works at Outback in New Bern, while Ethan (23) is a Deputy Sheriff in Tampa, Florida working the nightshift. They are my heart!

     This will be my first year as a Mustang at Tucker Creek Middle School, and my 16th year in the teaching profession. Having taught several grades including Kg, 1st, 2nd, 6th, and 7th, I found my niche with middle school and have spent the last eight years teaching 7th grade language arts, designing authentic learning experiences and building exceptional student relationships at the forefront. 

          I am excited to be a Tucker Creek Mustang and look forward to working with you throughout the coming school year to make your child’s educational experience as meaningful and memorable as possible.
