Principal Reading Aloud


Hello! I am delighted to be your principal this year!  I am a hornet at heart, because I went to Churchland when I was in elementary school,and this is still my home.  I am beginning my 20th year in education. I earned my bachelor's degree in English from UNC-Greensboro, where I was a North Carolina Teaching Fellow.  In 2008, I completed my master's degree in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University.  I am currently working to earn a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from High Point University.  

Prior to coming to Churchland, I was an English teacher at Ledford Senior High and West Davidson Senior High for seven years.  I was an assistant principal for seven years, serving at Ledford, West, and Central Davidson High. I spent two years working as a Secondary AIG Specialist for advanced-level middle and high school students and became principal at Churchland in 2015.  I believe all children are unique and all children can learn and grow.  I also believe that hard work and a positive attitude are the ingredients for a recipe of success!  I promise to work hard and have a growth mindset every day, and I hope you do, too!
