I am the proud parent of a wonderful son, Johnathon R.M. Root, who is a senior at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, MA).
I have a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Virginia. I also have a Masters Degree in Education from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. Old Dominion University is also where I completed my undergraduate degree in mathematics and history.
My son and I moved to Raleigh from Virginia in 2004 and loved the city and state so much we made it our "home". I just completed my thirteenth year of teaching and have truly loved my passion for knowledge. I have taught in high school, middle school, and elementary. I enjoy sharing knowledge and learning new things from the many students I have encountered.
My hobbies include my dog, AppleJacks, sewing, gardening, reading, cooking and home improvements.
Interesting fact: I am a Navy Veteran.
