I love children.  Or more specifically, I love teaching children.  That is the first thing I want you to know about me.  

I come from a family of teachers.  My maternal grandmother, mother, aunt, and uncle were all teachers.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, but after having my aunt, I knew what kind of teacher I wanted to be.  She made learning fun.  Her excitement and energy were engaging.  That year paved the way for my future plans.

Over the course of 28 years, I have taught kindergarten, fourth grade, and the majority of those years in second grade. I also had the opportunity to serve as the Instructional Coach for second and third grade teachers in our district.  For seven years I learned a great deal and worked with an incredible team of educators.  As much as I loved this opportunity, I missed working with the students. So in the fall of 2016, I returned to the second grade classroom at John Hay Elementary.

God has blessed me with a wonderful family.  My husband and I have two grown daughters who are married and live in Chattanooga. We also have three grand children who hold our hearts!
