About Me

I can hardly put into words, how blessed and excited I feel to be starting the school year as the Assistant Principal of Estes Elementary!  I grew up in Western North Carolina and have been teaching here for more than 20 years.  I started my career teaching Early Head Start and preschool, with Asheville City Schools, after graduating with a BA in Elementary Education from Mars Hill College.  I continued my studies to obtain a Birth-Kindergarten Certification from Western Carolina University and in 2005, received my National Board Certification as well. Over the course of my career, I have taught a variety of different levels and subjects including Exceptional Children, First Grade and Reading Interventionist.  I eventually attended Appalachian State University and went on to receive a Masters in Birth-Kindergarten as well as a certification in School Administration.  My husband and I have been married for 15 years and have two, very active boys who keeps us busy with sports and church.  

I’m looking forward to being part of the dedicated staff and supportive RAMS community at Estes!
