I attended Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Florida. When I'm not at school, I enjoy making memories with my family and friends. I also absolutely love spending time with my husband and all of our animals. We currently have dogs, goats, chickens, turkeys, and a goose. They keep us pretty busy! I'm so excited for a wonderful year in 5th grade!!

I attended Georgia Southern University and have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I am married with three daughters, ages 24, 22, and 17 years.

     Greetings Vikings! I am so excited to begin another school year teaching 5th grade at Vickery Creek Elementary.  I have experience teaching all grades from Pre-K through 6th grade, but fifth graders are my absolute favorite!

Lily will begin her studies in International Business this Fall at GSU Honor's College.  Ayla will return to Milton High School as a sophomore. We also have 3 adorable fur babies- two sweet little rescue dogs, Max and Ruby, and Alex, our cat. I love the beach, reading, dancing, cooking and traveling to new places. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
