      This is my 9th year teaching at a Rutherford County School. I previously taught at Walter Hill Elementary before coming to McFadden.  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 20 years and have two extraordinary children.  Garrett is a sophomore at Central Magnet School, and Taylor Anne is freshman at Motlow State.  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 4th grade this year!  My students bring me joy every day!!!
