I'm delighted to have the opportunity to work with you and your child here in 3rd grade!  Third grade was undoubtedly the most pleasantly memorable year of my elementary school experience.  Though that was some time ago and times have certainly changed, I want to help your child experience that same joy and excitement for learning that I did all those many years ago.  I believe that there is a spark that suddenly ignites in 3rd grade that propels children down the pathway of lifelong learning!  It gives me great pleasure to be a part of that journey! 


I'm a graduate of the Weaverville/North Buncombe School district.  I have a B.A. in History with a secondary teaching certificate from Mars Hill University.  I worked for 21 years as a museum educator with the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources before going back to school to earn a certificate in K-6 elementary education.  My wife and I have two young daughters who are also progressing through the Weaverville Schools.  I truly want to inspire your child's sense of curiosity and desire to learn just as I strive to do for my own children.  Working together, I know that we can make this happen!
