Bio

I am very excited to begin my 14th year of teaching and learning this year!

I was born in Houston, TX, and have lived in many places around the world, including California, Georgia, and Taiwan. Of all of the places I have lived, I call Chattanooga my home! My husband and I have three senior rescue dogs: Leonore, L.D. (Little Dog), and Connor. I am a huge animal lover who is also fluent in Mandarin, and I enjoy learning and growing each day!
