This is my 23rd year teaching elementary school! I began my career in Asheboro City Schools where I taught first grade for 7 years. I came to Hopewell in 2001, the year it opened, as a kindergarten teacher and I taught kindergarten for 4 years. After kindergarten, I moved to second grade and taught second grade for 3 years before coming to fifth grade. This year, 2016-2017,  will be my 9th year teaching fifth grade.


My husband, Dicky McCrary, and I have been married since 1996 and we live in Trinity. I have one stepson who also graduated from Appalachian State University (Go Mountaineers!!!) and he travels and works for Cook-Out Restaurants. My husband and I have a daughter who is a sophomore in college and a son who is a junior in high school. Sandy, my adopted golden retriever, is an extra special family pet!

When I am not at Hopewell, I enjoying spending time with my family, watching my children play sports, and traveling. I especially love being outdoors! My family loves to snow ski in the winter and ride Sea-Doos at the beach and lake in the summer.
