Degrees and Certifications:
I have worked as a librarian for 20 years, ten of which have been for UCPS. Prior to UCPS, I worked ten years at the Union County Public Library. I have also worked as a Reference Librarian at UNCG and UNCC. I received my Bachelor's degree from UNCC and my Master's degree in Library and Information Studies from UNCG. I love being around books, information, and people. I became an educator because I love to learn and I love the challenge of trying to find information or a book that is just right.
On a personal note, I have been married for 20 years and I have two sons: Silas who is a freshman at NC State University, and Will, who is a junior at Porter Ridge High School. During my free time, I love to travel, go out to eat, see movies, and to spend time with my family. One of our favorite family things to do is to go out to eat and split desserts. The hardest thing is deciding on one dessert!
I believe children have the right to read whatever they are interested in. One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Seuss is: “The more that you read, the more that you know. The more than you learn, the more you will grow!”
