I'm thrilled to be serving as a 7th grade science teacher at Malcom Bridge Middle school. I'm coming from Rocky Branch 5th grade as a STEAM teacher. This school year marks my 26th year in education. I began my career teaching middle school for 5 years, taught at the elementary level for 20 years, and now I'm back in middle school. I received both my Bachelor (1995) and Master (1998) degrees from the University of Georgia in Middle Grades Education. I earned my Specialist in Education (2005) from Peidmont College. I hold a math endorsement and gifted certification.

My greatest accomplishments are my children. Taylor (25), now a teacher herself; Logan (23), Anna (18), a freshman at the Coastal College of Georgia; and Jordan (13), an eighth-grader here at Malcom Bridge.
