Welcome to a new school year! This will be my 19th year as an educator. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. This year will be my first teaching fourth grade. I will be teaching science to all of third and fourth grades and am very excited! I LOVE science!! I have always adored children and am truly blessed to spend my days doing what I love. I grew up in Knoxville, but have called Greenback home for 13 years. I met my husband at the University of Tennessee and we have been married for 19 years. We have one son, Seth, who is a senior this year at Greenback. As a family, we like to travel, camp, hike, and watch the VOLS play. I enjoy reading, cooking, and going to the movies. I am looking forward to having my kiddos from last year once again and getting to know each of my new kiddos and their families!
