I grew up in both Decatur, Georgia and then in Cherokee County, and attended the University of Georgia after participating in joint enrollment during my senior year of high school. I attended UGA, and took advantage of the opprtunities afforded by the honors program and the study abroad Oxford Program. After a brief stint working in Atlanta after college, I returned to UGA to participate in their intensive UGA-Nets teacher certification program and earned my master's degree. During this time, I was sent to Washington-Wilkes High School for my practicum, and I ended up returning a year later to teach for what became the last 14 years. During my time there, I enjoyed being a mentor for new teachers, and working collaboratively with Special Education teachers in co-taught English classes. After having two boys, I wanted to pursue a career closer to home in Athens, and the opportunity to work at Oconee High School presented itself. I am excited for the new opportunity I have, and hope to be a valuable addition to the OCHS family!
