What is your favorite thing about your school?
A: I love that I get to work with some of the most genuine and loving families in Lincoln County. I feel that love from my students every day when they walk into the school, and hope they feel it from me as well. Right now, I am really missing their hugs and funny stories that they bring to each day. Oh, and I love my colleagues too...they're pretty cool.
How do you spend your free time?
A: I love being outside with my husband and kids on our farm.
What is your favorite food?
A: I'm a vegetarian, but I could eat Mexican food for days.
What is best book you’ve ever read?
A: The BIBLE...yes, that's the book for me!
What is your favorite movie?
A: I love all things Disney! It would be hard to pick just one!
If you could pick one place to visit on vacation, where would it be?
A: Hawaii. If I can ever get over my fear of flying, that's the first place I will go!
Who was your favorite teacher growing up?
A: Definitely my grandma, Mrs. Dewilla Engle. I was never a student of hers, but seeing her passion for her students was what inspired me to become a teacher myself. I've learned so much from her over the years and owe a lot to her. I can't forget about Mrs. Jeanne Cooper though. She was my 7th/8th grade teacher at Kings Mountain. She believed in me and I will never forget that.
What is your favorite team?
A: Waynesburg Tigers, of course!
If you could make one rule in life, that everyone had to follow, what would it be?
A: To love others, just as you love yourself. Think about how different our world would be?!

A: If I'm not wearing my blue and orange, YES! I'm proud to be a part of Team Lincoln!
