Open House is Monday, August 7th from 4:00-7:00. I am looking forward to meeting everyone. Our classroom is G4. You may bring school supplies on this day.


I was born and raised in a small town in Kentucky. With that being said, I am a Kentucky Wildcats basketball fan. I do love the DAWGS though and cheer for them in all sports. I moved to Georgia in 2004 to be closer to family and thankful for moving here.

I am married to my wonderful husband Chris, who teaches social studies at the middle school. We do not have any children yet, but have 3 nephews we adore, Jack, Will, and Oliver. We enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, the beach, and attending sporting events.


I attended North Georgia College and State University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Special Education and Master of Education Degree.

Before teaching 3rd grade, I taught reading intervention and 2nd grade. I believe it is important for teachers, students, and parents to work together to meet the needs of students. I want my students to always feel they can talk to me, trust me, and have fun with me. Being a teacher is rewarding, hardworking, and a blessing!
