Welcome to FIFTH GRADE! A little over ten years ago I moved from Knoxville to Chattanooga to begin my teaching career at Normal Park. I instantly fell in love with the school, community, and students. While at Normal Park I have taught 4th grade for eight years, 3rd grade for one year, and I am ecstatic to begin my tenth year at the school now teaching 5th grade.
I am married to my best friend, Matt, who also shares my passion for teaching. We welcomed our daughter, Cade Louise, last year to our family and are so in love with her. Our energetic boxer/pit-bull mix pup, Baxter, keeps us on our toes! As a family we spend a lot of time exploring and playing in our fabulous city! Besides teaching, I really enjoy traveling and learning about the history of our nation, drinking iced coffee, reading to my daughter, and cooking. It’s so fun creating tasty masterpieces in the kitchen!
This is going to be a wonderful year! I look forward to working with you and your child to help them have the most successful school year possible.
