    I am a native of Pittsburgh, PA, but Georgia has been home for 25 years where I began my teaching career with Atlanta Public Schools.  I taught English in several metro Atlanta school districts before earning my Counseling Degree from Columbus State University.  I've worked in Henry County Schools for 12 years at only two schools (Dutchtown Elementary & Austin Road Middle).  I believe that as an educator the care I provide students each day should mirror what I expect from others as they serve my own children.  I love to travel, sports, write and on my bucket list is the plan to skydive!!!!  I completed my first manuscript in 2015 which supports my role as a Counselor by encouraging families despite the dynamics to work together as a unit for their children.  I aniticipate an exciting year with our students!!!!
    Attendance is Key!
