COMMUNITY BASED TRIPS
We had an awesome time at Patterson’s farm. The students were able to play at their play ground, learn about the farm with a video, feed farm animals, and take a hay ride. Patterson’s farm was accessible for all our student’s and we appreciate that.
We visited Wal Mart and K&W. We shopped for items for our Thanksgiving Feast.

I was born and raised in Kannapolis, North Carolina. I graduated from A.L. Brown High School in 1986. I am proud to call Kannapolis my home. It is a great place to live and raise a family. It is a dream come true to be working in Kannapolis City School. I have been at Forest Park since April, 2012. I was a teacher assistant and now I'm the EC Teacher for our severe/profound classroom. I'm now working on my MAT in Special Education Adaptive at UNCC.
