Biosketch: I have taught 12 years in middle school in Career and Technical Education and am currently teaching sixth grade science and social studies. In 2017-18 I participated in the Kenan Fellowship Program through NC State University sponsored by Farm Bureau. Raising awareness of agricultural careers and the increasing importance of this career sector was and is my primary purpose for pursuing opportunities to learn and share information.
