From 1995-1997 I spent my first two year of teaching on a remote reservation in Northern Ontario, Canada. 

I've been at ATMS since 1998 and hope to be here for many more years.



I was born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  On an icy January 1st (1998) I packed up my rusty Honda Civic and made my way to NC.

Many things have changed since then; such as my low tolerance for temperatures below 40F and the rusty Civic is no longer around.  

I am a huge fan of hockey (the Ottawa Senators), Nascar (Tony Stewart), soccer and Pat Benatar.  Outside of sports and music I spend most of my time feeding and rescuing stray cats, taking care of my pets and spending time with family and friends.

All kids love playing.  It is my duty as an educator to keep them motivated and keep that love of play alive.  If they enjoy playing, then they will continue to be active and live to be healthy, well-rounded adults.
