Welcome to Southwest Elementary School.  There are wonderful things happening on campus each day.    I am very excited to be back at SWE this school year.    

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Akron in Ohio.  Upon graduation, I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in Language Arts, Math and Kindergarten education.  I graduated from East Carolina University (GO PIRATES!) with my Masters of School Administration.  My teaching career began in Onslow County in 2001.  I taught in an Exceptional Childrens classroom at Richlands Elementary School for one semester. I then moved to New Bridge Middle School to teach 7th and 8th grade math for ten years.  This is my 10th year as an Assistant Principal. I joined the staff at Southwest three years after having six years of experience at Stateside Elementary School.  I am looking forward to seeing all of the Southwest families and working with their students!    

My husband retired from the United States Marine Corps after 20 years.  We are the proud parents of Mady, a sophmore at the Onslow Early College High School, a fourth grader named Michael Leroy and four spoiled puppies (Flash, Ruby, Harley and Daisy).
