This is my seventh year teaching, and I've taught in Tennessee, Colorado, and California! I've spent my entire career in kindergarten! I love the way kindergarteners light up and get excited about learning. They inspire me every day!


I love hands-on, partner/group work to facilitate social growth and inquiry skills. I believe that all children, regardless of ability level, have something to give, so I try to provide an environment where all children feel comfortable expressing themselves!


Professional Development Leader, Ed Tech Jedi


I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BS in Child and Family Studies: Early Childhood Education, and I also received my MS in Education with a focus on ECE!


I love collaborating and sharing ideas/resources/stories/laughs with other teachers!
