College: Gaston College, Appalachian State University

Job Title: 8th Grade Social Studies/Science Teacher

About Me: I recently moved back to Gaston County to be closer with my family. I am excited to be back in the school system where I grew up. I am a first generation high school and college graduate. I had a hard time figuring out what I need to do to become successful. I had one teacher who helped me figure out what it was that I needed to do to become successful. From that point, I decided I wanted to be that same person for someone else.
