About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
I grew up in Tennessee but my heart lies in Pennsylvania (GO STEELERS!) I love all things family, football, and friends. My husband is Mike, and have been blessed with three kids: Christopher, Maclain, and Irby. I stay busy with school, sports, and projects.
My teaching license says, "University of Mississippi", yet I wore my Alabama gear the whole time (ROLL TIDE!).
I have been at OGCE since 2005. TIGER PRIDE all the way! I have had the privilege to have been a teacher assistant, a computer teacher, a 5th grade math and science teacher, a 4th grade math and science teacher, and now a 4th grade science and social studies teacher. I look forward to our time together this year!
