I'm a mom, wife, g-maw, and teacher in rural Kentucky. I've traveled and lived across the United States, but came back to contribute to the community that was home. I love writing, reading, home DIY projects, spending time with my grandson, and live, eat, breathe UK College Basketball. Go Big Blue! The best thing about my job is always the kids I serve each day at school. It's truly magical to see them grow, learn, stumble, try again, and find their own version of success.
