I am so fortunate to be with Mountain Crest again this year.  I am happy to report that students grew in academics by leaps and bounds in 2014-2015, and we are busy making plans for the best year yet at Mountain Crest.  

I hope the end of your summer proves to be a time of family fun:  rich in laughter and experiences.  Don't forget to continue reading.  See you on August 20 for Open House.  You will get to meet your teachers and find out bus information on this date.

And the phrase to remember is:  BEST AT THE CREST!  That is really the truth; we really are the BEST at the CREST!

I am so excited to be joining the wonderful staff at Mountain Crest Elementary School this year. Originally from McDowell County, I joined Burke County Public Schools in 2013 as an assistant principal at Freedom High School.  I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UNC Asheville. My background (MA. ED) is in School Counseling from Western Carolina University. I received my add-on certification for Administration from Appalachian State University. I am a National Certified Counselor and a National Certified School Counselor.  I was a member of the General Assembly's North Carolina Dropout Prevention Committee through its tenure.  I love traveling, cooking and spending time outdoors. I am looking forward to becoming a part of the MCES family!
