    The thing I love most about Achievement Charter Academy is…

    The staff, students and parents. This community is very welcoming and accepting – I feel part of a family.

    My greatest personal achievement is…

    WRAL Teacher of the Week and Teacher of the Year at East Garner Magnet MIddle and Top 24 in Wake County.

    The one thing I am proudest of my classroom/students/school for is…

    Watching my students engage in the lessons and having them ask thought provoking questions.

    Something people might be surprised to learn about me is…

    I traveled to Europe, Asia, and Africa with middle school students and hosted 7 exchange students from 4 different countries.
