    Hello Mangum Families! This is my 28th year with DPS! I am so excited to be an Instructional Assistant again this year in Kindergarten with Leslie Fenlon. I love helping the Kindergarten students grow and learn so much during their first year of school! Because of my Nursing background, I particularly enjoy supporting students with various medical needs and being part of the Emergency Response team at Mangum.
    On a personal note, I have been married for 42 years to my college sweetheart, Michael. God has given us 2 wonderful children who are both married, and 4 adorable grandchildren! My hobbies include Reading, Photography, & DIY crafts.
    I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful school!

    I joined Mangum in August of 2017 as an Instructional Assistant. I love being a part of the Mangum Family, particularly, Mrs. Wicker’s Kindergarten Class.  I was previously an assistant preschool teacher at ALDERSGATE Weekday School.

    I have three daughters - Skylar, a General ICU Nurse at Novant in Charlotte; Starr, a senior at Edgecombe Community College, MRI Program and Summer, a sophomore and volleyball athlete at Pfeiffer University. I enjoy our five dogs and two cats, the beach, our farm and spending time with my family and friends.

    I grew up as an MK (missionary kid), mainly in Kenya and South Africa , but also spent a couple of years in France and the UK. We moved to Bahama 23 years ago and have loved it ever since. My husband, Steven, and I have 3 children - Jordan, Trevor, and Callie, (who all attended Mangum) . I love to travel, read, see good movies, and eat food that reminds me of my years in Africa! One of my favorite things to do is have a cup of Chai tea! I also love working at Mangum and can't wait to meet all the new faces each year!
