Hello, Eastfield family! I am so happy to be teaching at Eastfield Global Magnet School. The journey that has lead me here has been an exciting and enjoyable one. I am originally from upstate New York, which is a far cry from living in New York City! It resembles Marion a great deal, just add about 30 feet of snow in the winter! I attended Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts for my Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education. After teaching for 13 years in New York, I decided I had enough of the cold weather and headed down south to Charleston, SC. While there, I taught for another 13 years and earned my Master's degree from Charleston Southern University. Again, I got the itch to move and it brought me to Marion, NC and to Eastfield. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my 3-year-old granddaughter.
