Hi there! Thanks for visiting my page. I have been teaching 4th& 5th grade exceptional education students at Normal Park for four years. I'm also the FLL Robotics coach. Prior to coming to Normal Park, I worked at Siskin Children's Institute as a Pre-K teacher, Curriculum & Assistive Technology Coach, and Trainer. I have also taught in the Warren County TN school system and as an adjunct professor at Northwestern Community College. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education from Tennessee Tech. I also have my Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Tech. I believe we are all lifetime learners so I am currently working on my Ph.D. at Carson Newman in Curriculum & Instruction. I am passionate about including students of all abilities in general education. I have presented at several national conferences on that topic.
Personally, I am from Chattanooga. I have been married for 19 years to my college sweetheart, who also happens to be a special education teacher in Hamilton County. We have three kids. In the summer, we love to travel. We are currently working our way through the National Parks. One summer, we spent over two weeks traveling the Oregon Trail. I love to read. I'll admit to being a Twilight and Harry Potter Fan. I collect different versions of classic fairy tales like the Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, and the Gingerbread Man.
I love Normal Park. I believe that students are more successful when the school and parents work together as a team. Please email with any question or concerns about your student.
