I graduated from Daniel Boone High School in 2006. Then I attended East Tennessee State University where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. This is my third year of teaching here at Ridgeview. My husband Walt and I live on a farm in Sulphur Springs where Walt raises cattle, corn, and hay. In my spare time I like to spend time with family, help on the farm, Pinterest, and shop.
