I have been teaching for 29 years at Bartlett Yancey High School.  I have taught physical science, all levels of biology, all levels of chemistry, and all levels of physics.  For the past 23 years, I have been focused in the curriculum areas of biology and physics.  I have served in many capacities here at school, in the county, and helped design curriculum at the state level.    I was chosen as the teacher of the year for BYHS in 2003 and also for the county in 2003.   I was chosen as the Outstanding Biology Teacher of the Year for the state of NC in 2009.  After working to obtain my National Board Certified status for a year, I can now say that I achieved this status in 2011.
