Quote Bubble Icon

I teach in the Thomasville City Schools because this is the BEST school system in NC! I have taught in Thomasville for 16 of my 20-years. This district has allowed me the opportunity to further my education. They have provided an endless amount of training, allowing me to be a better teacher for my students. Our district is a great place to work because it definitely feels like “family”. I have been blessed to teach in a district that supports me and the students of Thomasville.

Why I Teach

I cannot imagine what my life would be like with any other profession other than being a teacher! I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was in the 3rd grade and I am now into my 20th year of teaching. Teaching has allowed me to form so many relationships with students and other teachers that will last a lifetime. I believe what inspires me to teach day-in and day-out is the way the students are willing to learn, whether it be academically or just a “life lesson”. I have learned so much from all of the students over the last 20 years of being a teacher. I believe they teach me as well me teaching them. I am absolutely blessed to be able to have a job that I love!
