    Welcome to our classroom website!  I am so happy to be teaching 4th & 5th grade ELA and Social Studies at Fall Branch School!  I have been living in the Fall Branch community for over 11 years now, and absolutely love our special area.  I am married to my wonderful husband Wes, and together we have two children ages 7 and 9.  I have my Bachelors in Social Work from ETSU and my Masters in Education K-6 from Milligan College.  I spent 10 years working with Boys and Girls Clubs of America before becoming a teacher.  I started my teaching career in Sullivan County at Ketron Intermediate School, where I taught 5th grade Science and Social Studies.  I have been blessed to teach Kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade and 6th grade! 

    In my free time, I love hiking, camping, and tubing--basically anything outdoors!    

    I am honored to be a member of the Fall Branch Cardinal family and hope you find our class website to be a valuable resource!
