I am amazed to say that my entire career has been served at Fairmount Elementary. I started in 1999. I spent fourteen years in third grade. Last year I broke away and taught Fifth grade. The cool thing about that was I had taught most of those fifth graders in third grade. It was wonderful to teach them again. This year I am teaching fourth grade kids reading and science. They are a pleasure to work with.


I have always loved teaching. I was the little girl who made all her little cousins play school and be my students. I taught my dogs, horses, and sheep. For a while I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian. My two big loves in life are animals and children. I decided that I wanted to be surrounded by children all day, every day.

I attended Shorter College for my undergraduate studies. Piedmont College is where I got my Masters. I have also obtained my Reading Endorsement, Math Endorsement, and Gifted Endorsement.
