I have been teaching special education in Cedartown for over 20 years. I started out at Purks Middle School in 1992. I have a beautiful classroom here at CMS. We have a kitchen area in which we cook on a weekly basis, usually desserts. We use these desserts as rewards through the school week. We also have our own restroom as well as our own washer and dryer. My paraprofessional, Vicki, has been with since 2008. We have a great time in our room. We go on a consumer skills shopping trip once a month. We get a monthly purchase order to buy supplies for our room. I was born and raised in Cedartown and care about our communities children. I feel lucky everyday to have the job I do, because I love it.
