 I am so excited to be in “Big Green Country”.   Before coming to Reynolds High School, I spent 17 years in the Madison County school system in North Carolina.  Prior to my time in public education I worked with court appointed students as a teacher/counselor at Bowling Brook Prep School in Keymar, Maryland.  Education has played a very important role in my life.  I am a first generation college graduate, which has opened so many opportunities for me in the past 28 years since high school.
