I began teaching in August 1988 at Woodstock Elementary in Shelby County Schools. My first year teaching was in Sixth Grade Reading. The next year, I was moved to Second Grade which I taught there for 5 years. I transferred to Altruria to teach 2nd grade in 1994. I then taught 1 year in 4th Grade, 1 year in 5th grade, and was placed back in 4th grade for 11 years. I have now been teaching Third Grade for the last 3 years. I have my master’s in Educational Leadership from Trevecca University.
