“Only the curious will learn and only the resolute overcome the obstacles to learning. The quest quotient has always excited me more than the intelligence quotient.” –Eugene S. Wilson
It seems somewhat difficult for me to believe, but this school year marks my 29th year as an educator. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan, I moved from my hometown of Bad Axe, Michigan (in the tip of the “Thumb”) to North Carolina where I began my teaching career at West Montgomery High School. A few years later, I earned a Master of Education degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am currently in my 12th year at Gray Stone Day School. Because of the extraordinary faculty, high expectations for students, and an administration that respects and values the teachers, I am grateful and proud to be a part of Gray Stone Day School.
