Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Grover C. Fields Middle School, Home of the Grizzlies!
I am a veteran teacher with the Craven County School System. I have a Master's degree in Reading and a BS degree in Education from East Carolina University. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, K/1, first, second, third, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Additionally, I am an instructor at Craven Community College. My love of Language Arts grew out of my love of teaching first graders to read. Realizing each student is an individual and may learn to process text in different ways, I began my journey to become a Reading Specialist. It has been my humble privilege to be recognized three times as an outstanding educator in Craven County Schools. On a personal note, I am a native of Goldsboro, North Carolina and a New Bernian for the past 32 years. My two children, Brad and Claire, are in college pursuing their academic and career interests. My personal interests include enjoying family and friends, reading, church activities, genealogy, and continuing to grow in my profession.
