About the Teacher:

Experience: I graduated from The University of Memphis with a degree in Elementary Education (K-6).  I also have a Special Education endorsement (mild to moderate disabilities). I started teaching 1st grade with Memphis City Schools before having my children and taking a few years off with them.  After we moved to Hernando, I taught kindergarten at HBK (Hernando Baptist Kindergarten).  I also worked part time doing interventions at OGCE before coming in as a full time SpEd teacher 2013.  I love working with children and seeing their pride when they master new skills. I am looking forward to another great year at "The Grove"!  This year I will be working with 5th grade students in the following  pod classrooms: Williamson/Howell/Gilbert and Tippitt/Bland/Purnell

Bio: I grew up in Bartlett, TN.  My husband Bob and I have been married for 25 years and have a set of 22 year old twins (Molly and Landon).  My daughter attends Mississippi State and my son goes to University of Memphis.  We also have  a cat named Pepper.  Our family moved to Hernando 18 years ago and I am so thankful we did.  With great schools, parks, people, and activities, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to live and raise our children!
