I am married, and we have been blessed with two sons. We love animals and have a dog named Chloe. I love spending time with my family and attending Church. I have lived in the Paulette community most of my life and have many fond memories growing up here. Several of my relatives taught in the Union County Public School system and retired with many wonderful experiences, which had an impact on my decision to follow in their footsteps.
I am currently in my 25th year of employment with Union County Public Schools. I taught second grade at Maynardville Elementary School for thirteen years, and held the position of Literacy Leader for five more years. I then worked at the Central Office as a Reading Curriculum Coordinator, which gave me opportunities to work with all of the elementary schools in the county, as well as our middle school. I have been teaching 1st grade at Paulette Elementary School since its opening year and absolutely love teaching here with our wonderful Paulette family!
