Hi, Miners! I am so excited for another year in 4th grade here on the mountain! I graduated from the University of North Georgia in 2023. I truly love working with kids and I love to laugh! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outside, watching basketball, and doing just about anything as long as I am with those I love!

Hello Miners!! I am ecstatic for another year on the mountain, especially spent in 4th Grade! I graduated from the University of North Georgia with a bachelor's degree in Early Elementary and Special Education. I am passionate about teaching, and I am driven to meet all individual students' academic, social, and emotional needs. I have a genuine dedication and love to make learning engaging, hands on, exciting, interactive, and personable! Outside of teaching, I love to spend time in nature, hike, write, try out new restaurants, read, paint, and spend intentional time with my loved ones!
