The 2016-17 school year will be my 13th in the classroom.  After spending at year at Lenoir City Elementary School, I moved to Chattanooga and taught at Battle Academy for 8 years before joining the Apison in 2013.  I am so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school!



My husband, Cyrus, and I got married in October 2010. We have a beautiful daughter named Gibson who is the most wonderful, sweet, loving, strong-willed, and indepedent thing I've ever seen.

I am from Lenoir City, TN and moved to Chattanooga to teach at Battle Academy in 2005.  It's hard to believe I've been here for over 10 years!  We have family in Lenoir City and Atlanta and spend alot of time traveling to visit everyone.

 If you've seen my room, you know I'm a huge Tennessee football fan.  We have season tickets and go to as many games as we can.  My family has sat in the same seats at Neyland Stadium since 1980 and my mom sang Rocky Top to me as a lullaby, so I can truly say I come by it honestly.
