I am excited to have your child in my class! I try to instill in students a love for learning, and that everyday is an adventure not to be missed. This is my sixteenth year to teach, and I absolutely love what I do.
I have a B.S. in Accounting from Lipscomb University and a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Trevecca Nazarene University. I have taught 1st grade, 2nd grade, and now 3rd grade. My parents are retired teachers, and teaching/education has been a part of my life as long as I can remember.
Both of my children graduated from Rutherford County Schools. My son is a graduate of the University of TN-Chattanooga, and my daughter is a graduate of the University of TN-Knoxville.
I want to do everything possible to help your child learn and grow. I strive to find the balance of challenging students, but not frustrating them. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. My email is [email protected]. It is going to be a great year!
