This is my 4th year teaching at a Rutherford County School. I previously taught at Walter Hill Elementary. I was born and raised in Murfreesboro. I attended Walter Hill School as a kindergartner all the way up to eighth grade. After leaving Walter Hill, I attended Oakland High School where I met my husband. We have been married for 15 years and have two extraordinary children. Garrett is in 5th grade and Taylor Anne is in eight grade at Siegel Middle School. When my children went to school, I went back to school and obtained my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree at Middle Tennessee State University. I am certified to teach Pre-K through 8th grade.
I chose to become a teacher because I want to influence lives for the better and be like all my great teachers that have influenced me in positive ways. I have the chance to be an amazing teacher and to influence your child’s life in a special way. Teaching is one of the greatest gifts in life. My goal is to be a wonderful mentor, teacher, listener, and provide a safe environment where everyone feels a sense of community. I am extremely excited to teach 2nd grade this year!
