I have been teaching for 6 years, and all of it has been spent in Hamilton County! I have taught in 3 schools, Clifton Hills, Woodmore, and our lovely Red Bank Elementary. The majority of my teaching experience has been in 4th grade, but I have also taught 2nd grade, and have been a Math interventionist. I love that I have taught both upper grades and lower grades because I know what my kids need and where they're headed. I am having so much fun in 5th grade this year! It might have all my other years beat!



I am a good ol' sweet and spicy country girl from Knoxville, TN. I grew up raising cattle and chasing chickens. My friends know me as the nerdy goober. I love to laugh and enjoy life. I moved to Chattanooga in 2010 when my husband and I married. He had been relocated by his company, and I am so happy they did! We have loved our 7 years here and never want to leave! We enjoy being outside and Chattanooga has a lot to offer. When I'm not grading papers, lessoning planning, or making phone calls, I enjoy hiking, reading with a nice hot cup of coffee, and SPORTS, SPORTS, SPORTS! My husband is from Miami and is Portuguese, so it's all about the "U" and Christiano Ronaldo in our house! We live and breathe sports. My absolute favorite thing to do is love on my kids! Yes, I said it, my kids! Any teacher will tell you that the moment a student comes into our lives, they are our kids! My kids make every bad day better, and it means a lot to know that I am impacting lives and creating that fire to inspire learning!
