Tabor Methodist, 6 years in first grade at Southwest Elementary, 2 years in 4th grade at Southwest Elementary and 2 years as a 3rd grade HAG teacher at Southwest Elementary. My husband Jay and I have 3 children. Ashlyn, 21, a junior at Liberty University, Ansley, 18, a freshman at Appalachian State University, and Jordon, 12, a 7th grader at Meadowlark Middle. In addition to keeping busy with the kids, I love to race (triathlons, running and obstacles races) I spend much time at the gym as well as school! I love to get creative with the students and use my love of scrapbooking in the classroom.
