Bio

I was born and raised in Chattanooga and graduated from Red Bank High School in 2005. From there, I went on to attend college at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where I graduated in December 2009 with a bachelor's degree in early childhood education. I was lucky enough to get a job right out of college, and taught Pre-K at Cedar Hill Head Start from January to May, 2010. After that, I taught Pre-K another year at Chattanooga Human Services during the 2010-2011 school year. I decided my passion was with older kids, so I decided to get out of Pre-K. It took a little longer than I had hoped, but I was finally hired in December 2011 to teach 1st grade at Red Bank Elementary for the remainder of the 2011-2012 school year.

I finally got the job I had always been hoping for when I was hired to teach 2nd grade at Calvin Donaldson for the 2012-2013 school year. This is now my second year teaching 2nd grade at Calvin Donaldson and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I finally found where I belong and hope to be a part of this great school for many years to come!
