I'm thrilled to be serving as a 5th grade teacher in my 14th year at Rocky Branch Elementary (with a 3 year break from 2015-2018). This school year marks my 23rd year in education. I began my career teaching middle school and moved to elementary school after 5 years. I received both my Bachelor's (1995) and Master's (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 (22), now a teacher herself; Logan (20), a college student; Anna (16), a sophomore at North Oconee; and Jordan (10), a fifth-grader at RBES. All of my children are Rocky Branch alumni (or soon will be)!
