A Golden Eagle from TN Tech with teaching experience, I moved to Cumming in 2001, and try to make being outdoors at Lake Lanier a daily experience. I also love reading novels and history of Lake Lanier. My daughter and family live in TN and visit as often as schedules allow. I love attending the kids' soccer, lacrosse, T-ball games, & cross country meets. My teaching experience spans from 9th grade General Science all the way down to Kindergarten Math. I am excited for a great year in 3rd grade!
