Bio Information

Welcome to NDA!

I am thrilled and honored to be the Principal of Martin L. Nesbitt, Jr. Discovery Academy.  This will be my 25th year in education serving as a Teacher, Career Development Coordinator, Assistant Principal and Principal.  My husband Chris is an educator as well and Head football coach at Tuscola High School in Haywood County; Go Mounties!  Our son Tanner is enjoying his career as a Turbo Systems Design Engineer at BorgWarner.  And our daughter Taylor recently graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Mars Hill University. 

Being the Principal at NDA, it is my promise to every day lead our school community to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.  Our school is a place where students thrive academically through rigorous, challenging and engaging instruction.  Our teachers strive to create and deliver standards-based lessons that allow for collaboration, inquiry and critical thinking.  Our students are provided an innovative learning environment that is supportive and nurturing with a variety of extra-curricular activities to enhance their educational experience.  

We are a true learning community and it is my desire serving as Principal to work together with our teachers, students, parents and community to continue NDA's success.  All students deserve the best education to ensure they reach their fullest potential and discover their strengths and gifts to ultimately make our world a better place!
