I am excited to serve Tyro Middle School and the West Davidson feeder pattern.  I started working for this wonderful school system in 1998 when I taught at Ledford Middle School in the subjects of 6th grade Math, 6th grade Science and 8th grade Math. In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I also worked as a bus driver and coach there. I have served as the assistant principal of North Davidson Middle School, Friedberg Elementary and Midway Elementary.  I was named principal of Midway Elementary in 2012 serving there until I began my tenure as Principal of Oak Grove Middle School in 2015.  I served there until this opportunity to join Dragon country in 2023!   


First and foremost, I am here to do everything in my power to keep your student safe.  As your principal, I will partner with you and our staff to help your student have the opportunity to grow academically, socially and emotionally.  If you need my support, please do not hesitate to call our office between  the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at (336) 853-7795 or email me at [email protected].
