I was born and raised in East Tennessee. This will be my 14th year teaching  at South Central.  All of them have been in 1st grade with the exception of 1 year in Kindergarten. I am excited to watch my students grown and learn.  I am married to Brandon and we have two sons, Ivan and River.  We enjoy living in the country and are currently in the process of remodeling a house. I love to teach, read, shop, and travel.  I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year.
