I have been both a student and teacher here at Fairmount! I taught fourth grade at FES from 2001 until the 2015-16 school year. The following year, I moved up with my students to the 5th grade. I enjoy teaching science a lot; investigations are my favorite activities in the classroom. 

I have two children and a highly energetic dog. 

I attended colleges in Dalton and Kennesaw; I completed my Master's degree online with Walden University and my Specialist degree with Piedmont. I am certified in Early Childhood Education.

As a teacher, I have a mission. It is to have a positive influence on each child everyday. I want to see and work with each as a unique individual having many facets to consider (intellectual, social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological), with both strengths to build on and weaknesses to overcome, and possessing much potential to be tapped. I will work to inspire and empower each child to be a positive influence in the world.
