Hello Friends!  I am so happy to have found a permanent home at West View Elementary!  I am looking forward to a great year.  This will be my 8th year of teaching.  I am originally from Ohio and received my B.S. in Elementary Education from Baldwin Wallace University.  I moved to East Tennessee in 1996 to attend Milligan College where I completed a Masters of Education.  I taught Title I in Washington County for 5 years and then took some time off to stay home with my children (15 years!).  I returned to teaching a few years ago and added a K-12 Special Education endorsement to my teaching license from ETSU.

East Tennessee is a beautiful place to live.  When I am not in the classroom, you can usually find me at one of my children's sporting events (Mason, Micah, & Cage), hiking in the mountains, or on the tennis court.
