    There's not much to say other than I love being in the classroom. I've never had a job where I look forward to getting up every day with the knowledge that I have the potential to influence other's lives in a profound way. If I'm not teaching, then I'm spending time with family, reading, programming, or training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

    After taking two years off to be with my newborn, I am excited about returning to teaching at Poole's Mill! I have my Master's in Early Childhood Education which I received from Georgia State University. I also have my ESOL, STEM, and Gifted Endorsements. This will be my fourth year teaching 5th grade along with four years teaching 3rd and 4th grade. This year, I will have been married to my wonderful husband for ten years, and we just had our second baby girl in April. I can't wait to be a part of your child's last year of elementary school!
