I am a Florida native but Cleveland has been my home for about 26 years. I really feel very blessed to live and work in such a special place....the Northeast Georgia mountains! My parents currently live in Blairsville. I have one older sister and she currently lives with my parents. My Family is very important to me so I'm thankful they are nearby so we can visit often. I really enjoy the outdoors...hiking, running, horseback riding, and gardening. Over the past few years, traveling has become a favorite summer activity. I've been to several's so exciting to see exciting places around the world. Next summer, I'll be heading back to England and Paris (my favorite visit ever)!

I LOVE animals! Your child will hear the name, Sydney, quite often! Sydney is my 7 year old Australian Shepherd. I love to share little stories about her with my students. She is full of energy and antics! I also share my home with a little cat named Stella and a 21 year old African Grey parrot named Gilbert. They keep me very busy and amused when I'm not in my classroom teaching! :)

I am also getting a new puppy very soon! I will be adding another Australian Shepherd to my crew. She is a blue merle with blue eyes. I haven't decided on a name....YET. ;)

***Anytime you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Communication is vital between parents and teachers. My classroom door is always open.***
