Teaching has always been my passion!  My kindergarten teacher inspired me to become a teacher.  I graduated from Valdosta State University and moved to Gainesville, FL.  I taught second grade for 5 1/2 years.  I was the committee chair for the school's yearbook, assistant coach for Newberry High School cheerleading squad, and the on-site facilitator for tutoring.  My husband was transferred to Hixson, TN in 2011, and I was given the opportunity to teach at Big Ridge Elementary.  I have taught second, third, and fifth grade while at BRE.  I also coach the BRE cross country team.  I have two beautiful children, and I love being a mom!  I enjoy spending time at the gym, boating, camping, and running.
