    Hello, Dolphin family! This is my first year at Daves Creek Elementary, but my 16th year teaching. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of North Georgia in Elementary and Special Education, and a Master’s degree in Reading and Math from Walden University, with endorsements in Reading, Math, and ESOL. In my spare time, I love to go on new adventures with my husband and two children, drink coffee, indulge in a good book, and being outside. Teaching is my passion and I have a personal goal of making the best better. I believe every child is destined for greatness and I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!
