Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 18th year teaching! I have taught all grades K-5. I began my teaching career in Carroll County where I taught K, 1, and 3. For 15 years, I've been at UGE. My husband and I moved to the area once he accepted a physical education position in Clayton County. I've taught 1st, 4th, 5th, and EIP here at UGE. I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in early childhood education as well as a math endorsement.
My husband and I have been married for 17 years. We have a 13 year old daughter and 17 year old niece who we are raising. During my spare time, I love to spend time with my family, read, and enjoy the outdoors (walking, swimming, hiking, geocaching, biking).
Teaching children is my passion. I have always loved inspiring young children. I encourage them to do their best in everything they do. Building positive relationships between myself, my students and their families is a priority. Communication is the key for us to have a succesful year together.
