    A few things about me! I am originally from PA. but have lived in North Carolina
    since 1995. I am married and have an 18 year old son, a 31year old stepson and a
    7 year old grand-daughter!
    This is my 8th year teaching, and my fifth year here with the Carroll Middle School family.
    I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my 4th graders and I know that we will learn so much this year.
    Please let me know if you have any questions!!



    "Two Sculptors"

    I dreamed I saw a studio

    And watched two sculptors there.

    The clay they used was a child’s mind

    And they fashioned it with care.

    One was a teacher-the tools he used

    Were books, music, and art.

    The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand,

    And a gentle, loving heart.

    Day after day, the teacher toiled with a touch,

    That was careful and sure,

    While the parent labored by his side

    And polished and smoothed it o’er.

    And when at last, their task was done,

    They were proud of what they had wrought.

    For the things they had molded into the child.

    Could neither be sold nor bought.

    And each agreed they would have failed

    If either had worked alone.

    For behind the parents stood the school

    And behind the teacher, the home.
