This is my first year at Greenback and am very excited to be apart of the Greenback family. I come from Knox County where I taught for 10 years. Prior to that, I taught 2 years in Johnson City. Over my 12 years of teaching, I have taught 6th and 7th grade E.L.A and Social Studies, 4th grade E.L.A and Social Studies, 5th grade, 3rd grade, and was a Gifted and Talented Instructional Coach. I have been married to my husband, Kyle, for almost 11 years. We have an 8 year old named Barrett (a.k.a Bear). We truly enjoy spending time as a family whether it it is camping, playing with our standard poodle (Rusty), watching the Volls play, or just hanging around the house. I have a deep passion of watching students learn, grow, and blossom. It is the most amazing thing to be able to LOVE what you do every day. I am committed to student excellence and dedicated to my passion. I look forward to an amazing year full of fun and learning!
