Welcome to my teacher page!
Here is a little bit about myself. This is my 24th year of teaching. I received my Bachelors degree from West Georgia College in Early Childhood Education. I received my Masters degree from Kennesaw State University. Over the years, I have enjoyed teaching in a variety of settings including both regular and special education. This year I am very excited to have a fifth grade homeroom and to teach ELA as a part of the fifth grade team.
My philosophy of education is simple. Follow the "Golden Rule." I strive to treat students, parents, and colleagues with the same kindness and high expectations that I would want for my own children, my own self as a parent, and myself as a team member.
I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. My husband's name is Greg. We have three grown children with families of their own: Shannon, Chase, and Brandon. We also have a ten year old daughter, Christina. She is a fourth grade student here at Eastside. We have six grandchildren, Elizabeth, Dexter, Rex, Amelia, Finley Kate, and Luke. In October we are expeciting our seventh grandbaby, Eason. I just love being a "Gramzie." I can't leave out my fur babies. We have two westies named Hootie aka "The Shredder" and Gracie aka "The Couch Potato." We also have a nice little cat named Inky Binky.
I am looking forward to a fantastic,
2018-2019 school year!
