"Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be."

I am beyond excited to start my 9th year teaching at Normal Park with you and your child!  I began my teaching career here as a student teacher and have been blessed to call Normal Park "home" ever since!  I spent 1 wonderful year in Kindergarten before moving to 3rd grade where I have spent the last 7 years.  I adore this stage in a child's educational career and cannot wait to partner with you in your last year at the Lower School!
 
I was born and raised in Chattanooga, attended Berry College (Rome, GA) for a year, and then returned to University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to complete my degree in Early Childhood Education with a dual license in Special Education.  Chattanooga is my forever home, and I couldn't imagine a better way to pour back into our amazing community than spending my time with your amazing children!
 
I live in the Hixson area with my husband of 5 years, Michael, our two boys, Preston (2 years) and Lawson (born in February), and our two dogs.   I love to read, write/journal, ride horses, hike, boat, play around with photography, and spend time with my family outdoors!  I could eat popcorn and ice cream every single day and usually am drinking either coffee or sweet tea!
 
Building relationships is the part of my job that I enjoy the most, so I cannot wait to get to know you and your child!  We are going to have an amazing year full of learning and adventure.  Let's get the 2018-2019 school year started!!
