Employee Biographical Information
I began my teaching career as a Special Education Teacher in Swansboro, NC. After 7 years I decided I wanted my Masters degree and I loved the library and reading so I decided to get it in Library Science. I went to East Carolina University and graduated in May 2010. I moved to the library in 2007 in a middle school. I spent 5 years as a Media Coordinator and an Instructional Technology Facilitator. Then my family was transfered to Western NC. I became the Media Coordinator at Swain Middle School. I was there 4 years and we were transfered here. I moved to Union County in January 2016. I started working at Walter Bickett Elementray School as a Special Education Teacher in July 2016. I decided I wanted to go back into the library and started here at the Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle School this year.
