I am so excited to be a part of the McFadden family! I earned both my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from Middle Tennessee State University. I have taught for 17 years; I spent 7 years teaching “Big K” and 8 years teaching Kindergarten Readiness. This is my third year teaching kindergarten at McFadden, and I love the family and community here. I have a heart for Early Childhood Education, and my daily prayer is that your child leaves at the end of each day with some little nugget of knowledge, wisdom, and/or character that he/she didn’t have when the morning bell rang.
I have been married to my husband, Brent, for 15 years, and we have two children, Cole (8) and Allie (5). When I am not in school, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to concerts (my favorite place to see a show is the Ryman Auditorium!), and reading. I am planning to run the Middle Half again this year, and I hope to improve my time. My training has been derailed the last 2 years so fingers are crossed for this year!
I am looking forward to watching the children here grow and do amazing things!
