I have been teaching in the Bertie County school district for over 27 years. I grew up in this area, returned after college and began my teaching career. My experience working here has been positive. The children and families I have worked with have been kind, caring, and supportive. Our teachers collaborate and work together as a team. Our county is a great place to work. Our schools are safe and inviting. Bertie County Schools values education and the success of our students is the main priority.

Why I Teach

Many wonderful teachers were positive role models in my life. I am grateful for them because they helped me become the person I am today. Their influence led me to become a teacher. My goal is to have the same kind of positive impact on my students. Every day, my students inspire me to teach. I try to be a role model to them by doing my best, so they will as well. I give 100% in class to make sure my students will understand the importance of doing the same. There are multiple moments that keep me motivated to continue teaching. Seeing my struggling students working hard and becoming successful is such a rewarding experience. Observing the children learn and grow every day is an inspiration to me. I truly enjoy seeing and hearing from my former students. It gives me great joy to find out about all of their accomplishments and successes. I feel honored to have been a small part of their lives.
