Where to start? Well, I grew up in Johnson City and attended University School from 2nd Grade until I graduated. After High School, I went to Milligan and ETSU. I finished my graduate degree from ETSU, so I have been a BUC all my life. I have been with the South Side family since 2003 when I student taught in 5th grade and Kindergarten. I have taught 2nd Grade for the past 5 years. This year will be my third year in the Media Center. Each year has been a different challenge and brought new excitement to my life. I look forward to seeing the kids change throughout the year and become independent learners and readers. Also, for the past 9 seasons, I have been the assistant basketball coach for the girl's varsity team at Science Hill High School. Outside of school, I have a lot of different interests that range from gardening, golfing, camping, and hiking. I also enjoy walking, tubing, and gaming.
My family REALLY loves Disney World. We have gone too many times to share. There is always something about that place that is magical. Every time we go, there is always something new to see. We always go during Fall Break each year. Disney in October is really amazing. The lights really make the place come alive. My favorite ride in the whole park is Pirates of the Caribbean. I do hope everyone gets to go there at least once. It truly is fun for the whole family. I promise I receive no money for the plug. HAHA
