A Little About Me

I am so pleased you stopped by my webpage.


Let me fill you in with a little bit about myself….


     This is my 22nd year of teaching, but let me tell you how it all started….

I am originally from Humboldt, TN. After graduating high school, I attended the University of Tennessee at Martin where I obtained a degree in Special Education. I began my teaching career working as a 2nd grade Resource teacher. I then moved to Memphis and began teaching at Altruria Elementary as a Functional Skills teacher. I taught this class for 6 years and then moved to Resource 4th-5th for 4 years. In 2010 I was moved to Preschool!!!  

Also in 2010, I remarried a wonderful man and gained four step-children! Although our older kids are grown and have moved out, we now have a 2 year old baby girl at home. Some of my favorite things are reading, taking pictures, dolphins, and spending time with family. 

I have loved being in the preschool classroom and can’t wait to see the new kiddos coming in this year! We have so many exciting things planned for this coming year. I know your kids are going to have a great time!
