Dear Parents and Students, August 17, 2020
I am very excited about the upcoming school year. I have heard wonderful things about our upcoming students, and I am looking forward to our time together.
This is my twentieth year as a certified teacher and my nineteenth year in Henry County. Over the years, I have enjoyed teaching second/third-grade math and reading at Liberty Elementary School in Tennessee, sixth-grade science and reading at Austin Road Middle School, second grade at Flippen Elementary School, seventh and eighth-grade science and social studies at Hampton Middle School, first grade at Troup Elementary School in Connecticut, and 8th grade ELA special education at Union Grove Middle School. I received my undergraduate degree and my master’s degree from Austin Peay State University, my specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University, and my administrative certification from Southern Connecticut State University.
I have three adult children and five beautiful grandsons. I enjoy learning new things, exercising, reading, doing various crafts, and spending time with my family.
I believe that all children are entitled to receive an education that is goal-oriented, student-driven, differentiated based on student needs, and prepares students to be college and career ready. In a setting that is safe, warm, respectful, welcomes student diversity and parent involvement. Instruction should be engaging, motivating, rigorous, and develops a student’s love of learning.
It is extremely important to your child’s education that we stay in contact with each other throughout the year. You will receive newsletters, notes, and reminders during the year to keep you up to date with classroom and school events. I will be using Google Classroom this year.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns you may have. My door is always open!
I look forward to learning and growing with each of you. With your cooperation and support, we will have a FANTASTIC year!
