    Hello and welcome! I am so glad to have you in my class. I love teaching at East Lake and believe that I am very lucky to be at such a wonderful school.
     
    I have been teaching students with special needs for 19 years. This is my 11th year at East Lake and before that I taught in Clayton County. I am married to my wonderful Mr. Jeff and have one beautiful daughter named Mandy. She is currently participating in an internship at Disney World and I am looking forward to visiting her real soon. I have a wonderful family and I love spending time with them. In fact, my sister, Mrs. Buce, teaches 4th grade here at East Lake. I love teaching and I always say Room 417 is the Happiest Place at East Lake!!

    Hi!! I've had the pleasure of serving Special Needs children at East Lake for 5 years.  I love teaching our kids and in turn, I learn from them every single day!!  I have been married to my best friend Erik for 16 years and we have 3 beautiful children.  I was born and raised in Indiana and graduated from Tennessee State University. 
     Besides being in the class room, I love being in the kitchen.  I love the artistic process involved in creating custom birthday and special occasion cakes.  Some people around East Lake affectionately call me "The Cake Lady".
