Teaching is a calling for me, and I love ELA and my students. I have been teaching grammar, writing, and reading for many years, yet I still learn something new each day. By grace, I am married to a wonderful, Godly man, Davey, and we have three children, Cameron-26, Katie-22, and Noah-19. In July 2016, I became a grandmother for the first time to a sweet little girl, Aubrey, and we gained another granddaughter in January 2018. Being a Mimi is wonderful and rewarding. Blessings abound in our home!

My students are an extension of my family in my heart, so I treat them like I treat my own children. Together, we move mountains each day both in the classroom and with our character. With all my heart, I want my students to leave my classroom as stronger, smarter, better people than when they entered. I earnestly believe that education is the greatest deciding factor for our success in life, so let's get busy learning new things. We rise or fall together.
