Welcome to my Classroom
Thank you for visiting my web page. I have been teaching English and social studies at Charles D. Owen Middle School for twenty-one years, and I love my job. Prior to coming to Owen, I received a B.A. in economics and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After working in banking for several years, I completed the Teacher Certification Program at Appalachian State University. In 2008, I completed a master's degree in middle grades education at Western Carolina University.
This is my first year teaching social studies on the seventh grade team. I invite you to explore this site for more information on the exciting things going on in my classroom and elsewhere at Owen Middle School.
