    I am thrilled to be the principal at Cedar Grove. I have worked in the field of education for 25 years. I have taught 1st through 5th grades. I worked for three years as a Teacher Specialist through the State Department of Education. After serving as the assistant principal here for four years, I was given the opportunity to move into the principalship. I absolutely love my job and look forward to coming to work each day!
    I graduated from Lander University in 1991 and returned there for a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2002, I earned an additional Master of Arts Degree in School Leadership. In 2004, I received National Board Certification in Early Childhood Literacy. I love learning and work to find ways to learn more each day. 
    I am married with three beautiful children. Kailen is 21 years old, Trenton is 18 years old, and Joesie is 13 years old. My most favorite thing in the whole wide world is spending time with my husband, Tony, and our children.
    I believe that every child should be given the opportunity to excel to his or her fullest potential.   As a mother, I know how very important your child is to you and they are to me as well.   It is my goal that our teachers, staff, and parents work together so that our children are happy and successful.

    I look forward to our year together. Please help us by talking with your children about their day, asking questions about their learning, and keeping in contact with your child's teacher. Together we will make a difference!
