"Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up." -- Albert Einstein, The Evolution of Physics.
After making the decision in high school to teach biology, I completed my BS, Ed. Biology degree at Western Carolina University in 1991 and have been teaching a variety of life sciences since the fall of ‘91. My husband, Terry, and I enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, gardening, traveling, and caring for our dogs. Additionally, I have begun sharing my passion for photography with others through outdoor photo sessions. My most adventurous outdoor endeavor has been skydiving! Gray Stone Day School succeeds by setting academic excellence and personal growth as priorities, consequently fostering an educational atmosphere that is as refreshing as it is challenging. I am genuinely excited and humbly honored to be a Gray Stone Knight!
