This is her 16th year as a language arts teacher. She attended the University of Georgia for two undergraduate degrees: English and English Education. Additionally, She have a master’s degree in Secondary English Education from Piedmont College. As an educator, she sees her role as crucial to shaping the leaders of tomorrow. It is her sincerest hope that every student she has the privilege of teaching grows as a reader, writer, speaker, and thinker.
She have been married for 16 years. She is the mother to a fiercely spirited, independent 11-year-old daughter and a humorous, inquisitive 7-year-old boy. As a family, she loves to travel and go on adventures exploring new places or events. Logically then, one of her biggest passions is reading. What better way to explore than opening a book and encountering new, historical, fantastical, or dysfunctional worlds? She hopes to share this passion with her students and allow them to explore other realities, empathize with character’s struggles, rejoice with triumphs, and add different perspectives to their daily lives.
