I feel very fortunate to teach at Oakley School considering I attended Oakley as a child!! I have taught first grade for 21 years, one year of second and one year of Kindergarten at Oakley Elementary. I left OES last year to become an Instructional Coach in the BCS System. I missed OES and teaching, so I am THRILLED to be back! I am beginning my 23rd  year here, at Oakley and I have been in the Buncombe County system for 29 years! I have a wonderful assistant, Ms. Courtney Satterfield !
We are beginning our 6th year together this year.
Together, along with our Smarties we are a great team!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Brian.  We have three wonderful kiddos, who also attended OES!!  Jessica, who is starting her career as a Special Ed. teacher, Josh a junior at UNC Chapel Hill, where he is a baseball player, "GO HEELS!" and Jenna, a junior at AC Reynolds High School, who enjoys singing in a Praise Band! 
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, shopping and reading!
