    I am a born and raised Georgia girl! I received my undergraduate in Early Childhood Education from Georgia College and State University and my masters from Kennesaw State University. I started my wonderful teaching journey after graduating in 2012 and have taught 3rd grade, 5th grade, 2nd grade and 1st grade. I have an amazing husband, two precious boys and a furry child named Penny- she is a Goldendoodle. We love spending time outside with them when it is warm. I also love Braves baseball, anything Disney and the beach!
