My teaching career began in seventh grade language arts in 2004. This is my sixth year teaching eighth grade language arts, and I'm loving it!!!! (most days)
I will teach, lecture, drill, scream, whisper, sing, dance, and stand on my head if that's what it takes to get my students' attention and get them to LEARN!!!
In 2010 I was chosen as Surgoinsville Middle School's Teacher of the Year. Furthermore, I was chosen as the 2010 Hawkins County Schools' Middle School Teacher of the Year. What a surprise and an honor!!!
I have a bachelor's degree in business from East Tennessee State University. I have a master's degree in education from East Tennessee State University.
I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and the mother of two wonderful sons. I am now a granny!!!! I have two beautiful, healthy grandsons named Jonah and Jude. I am blessed!!!!!
