I have been teaching first grade for fourteen years.  I taught for two years in Tennessee and twelve years in Marianna, Fl.  It has been a privilege to watch the growth in all of my students.


I am married and have two children.  I was a stay at home mom until my youngest child went to kindergarten.  I decided to substitute teach as a way to be a part of my children's education.  After doing this for several years, I returned to school to finish my degree in education.  This was  something I had always wanted to do and feel that it is a privilege to teach children. I grew up in Tennessee, but spent three years in south Florida.  After getting married, my husband and I moved many places but his job brought us to the Marianna area.  It is a honor to teach and live in this area.  It is amazing to be a part of this community.  It now feels like home.
