Hello! I am originally from Alaska but I have been teaching ESL in Gaston County since the year 2,000. Prior to joining Brookside, I taught ESL to international students at the University level , private school students in Honduras, followed by 18 years of newcomer classes for Gaston County schools. I enjoy working with all ages and abilities of language learners. When I am not teaching, I love spending time outside either hiking, biking, running or fishing with family in the summer in Alaska. I have one daughter, Sofia, who is currently attending school at Chapel Hill. I am so happy to be part of the Brookside Bulldog team as your ESL teacher.
