        I proudly lead this school as I have a strong history in the Mint Hill area, both as a resident and a CMS employee.  I was a student at Northeast for three years as a teenager; returned as an adult to complete my student teaching; returned yet again, to teach Language Arts and Social Studies for six years; and now I am lucky enough to be the school Principal. I have served in the CMS district my entire career, and I lead with a desire to see all students succeed.

       I took my first steps into a classroom at Rama Road Elementary many years ago as a classroom teacher assistant. It did not take long to realize I would make education my lifetime career. Building relationships with students and partnerships with families is key to the future of education. I believe every child can learn when presented material in a variety of ways and have the opportunity to create and thrive in a positive learning environment, surrounded by a group of educators willing them to succeed. Northeast is full from top to bottom with educators that share my belief. I am so glad you are here.  Stop in for a visit anytime, and be ready to learn something great and new.
