Subjects Taught
5th grade


I received my B.S. in Early Childhood Education with a minor in special education from University of Tennessee Chattanooga. I am highly qualified to teach PreK-8th grade.


I have worked in the Hamilton County School district for seven years. I spent four years as the director of the school age childcare program at Wolftever Creek Elementary and Apison Elementary. The past three years I have spent teaching grades 3-5.



I have enjoyed teaching at Apison since 2013. Born and raised in Ooltewah, I graduated from Ooltewah High School. I got married on March 13, 2011, on Ko’Olina Beach on the island of Oahu, which is one of the many islands that together are Hawaii.  Scott and I have a son named Slade and a Weimaraner, Lola.  

When I am not teaching, I enjoy watching LSU football games, cooking, shopping, organizing, and traveling. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

My desire is that I will teach my students that learning is fun and limitless. I want my students to leave my class with a love for books, ambition to discover their world around them, and to know that no matter the age everyone needs to take some time to have a little fun. I want my students to learn mutual respect in a diverse community of learners.
