I am a native of Birchwood, Tennessee, a small town north of Chattanooga, and I graduated from King University in Bristol, Tennessee, with a degree in English and Secondary Education. I spent 6 years working as a 7th grade Language Arts teacher in Kingsport City Schools, and in 2016, I started working at T.A. Dugger as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher.
I have always been passionate about reading! I can remember devouring books late into the night, long after I was supposed to be asleep, simply because I was too engrossed to put it down! I hope to share my enthusiasm and passion for books with my students and help every single student find a book that gets them excited about reading!
I am married with two daughters, Harper and Halle, and one dog, Banjo. I enjoy spending time with my family, doing anything outdoors, swimming, bargain shopping, cooking, and, of course, reading!
