Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors of Education in Child and Youth Development from Milligan College
I grew up in Jonesborough, Tennessee on my family's Angus Cattle farm. I decided that I wanted to be a teacher at a young age. I loved babysitting and tutoring children and I wanted a career in which I could work with children each day. School did not always come easily to me and I had several amazing teachers who encouraged me and pushed me to do my best. This is what I want to do for each of my students. I believe that all students have the ablity to learn and deserve an adult that believes in them and is willing to do whatever it takes to help them succeed!
-Teaching Experience: I did my student teaching at Fairmont Elementary in Kindergarten and 4th grade. I taught 3rd grade at Jonesborough Elementary for 3 years. This is my first year teaching at Ridgeview and I am loving being a part of this wonderful school!
-Education: I attended Milligan College and graduated with a degree in Child and Youth Development.
-Family: I married my wonderful husband in 2014 and we welcomed a little girl, Merritt, in July of 2017. I have amazing parents who have been married for thirty years and a younger sister and brother.
-Hobbies: reading, spending time with friends and family, church, traveling, farming, 4wheeling, skiing, hiking.
-Favorites: anything caramel or chocolate, coffee, breakfast foods, cowgirl boots, country music, books, colorful pens, and teaching third grade :)
