About Me

Welcome to 3rd grade HAG.  This is my 22nd  year in the classroom.   My teaching career started in 2nd grade at Griffith Elementary followed by 5 years in a Pre-K classroom at Mt. 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.
