Welcome to the Media Center webpage! This is my ninth year working at McAlpine, but my seventeenth year working in elementary school! I am so happy to be a part of our wonderful school! I have also taught 2nd and 4th Grade. I have lived in the Charlotte area for over 18 years. My husband and I moved here from Ohio in 1997. We have a daughter who is 10 years old. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors and of course reading!
