     I am a native Atlantan and grew up in Atlanta and Morrow.  I attended Clayton State and the University of Georgia before receiving my BA in English from Georgia State University.  I later received my post-baccalaureate teacher certification from Mercer University.  Currently, I am enrolled at Thomas University working on my MS in Teacher leadership.

     

    I am married and have three grown children.  I have a toy poodle and four cats, and am an animal lover.  In my spare time, I enjoy painting, playing the piano, singing, reading, and attending sci-fi/fantasy conventions with my husband who is an author in those genres.  I enjoy going to the beach and spending time in Savannah and traveling in general.  

     

    I love teaching ELA and teaching 6th grade.  Before moving to middle school, I was an elementary school teacher teaching 4th and 5th grade (all subjects), so I have a real connection to 6th graders and understand the transition between elementary and middle school.
