I am excited to be teaching 4th grade this year. This is my 22nd year of teaching. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades.  I have also been an instructional technology specialist, where I taught every grade from kindergarten through 5th grade.
 
I have been married to my husband Shawn for 18 years and we have 2 children. Sara is 16 and will be a junior at West Forsyth High School. Zachary is 13 and will be an 8th grader at Liberty Middle School.
 
I also have 5 fur babies.  My German shepherd is named Dooley.  My kittens are named Austin and Ali.  My adult cats are named Coco and Cami.
 
I graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee with a bachelor of science in business.  I worked for two business corporations and then decided to return to school to acquire my teaching degree.  I returned to Lee University and became certified to teach grades pre-K through 8th grade.  I also attended Lesley University where I received my master's in educational technology.
 
I am very excited to be in 4th grade. I believe in learning hands on and through real life examples to better prepare my students for the future. We are called Lemley's Leaders!

I have been teaching for over 20 years, and I have been at Matt since it opened in 2001.  I received my Bachelor degree from Berry College, my Master degree from Brenau University, and my Education Specialist degree from Piedmont College.  My teaching experience ranges from high school to preschool, but elementary grades is truly where I love to be!  My favorite aspect of teaching is getting to know each student as an individual and forming  a caring relationships with each one.  I desire to model my love of learning for my students and inspire them to do the same.  In my spare time I love spending time with my family, making quilts, and reading.

Hello! I am thrilled to be at Matt Elementary again this year. My husband, Matt, son Dawson, and our two dogs, Bonnie & Clyde, recently moved to Forsyth county from Gainesville, GA. My favorite pastime is getting together with my family and friends, just relaxing and enjoying each other's company. I also love crafting when I have time, and I have recently taken up hand calligraphy. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology from North Georgia College & State University, and a Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education from Liberty University. This will be my 4th year teaching fourth grade and my seventh year in education. Other than teaching 4th grade, I have served as a kindergarten paraprofessional and as a specials teacher. Getting to know students, their families, and building a classroom community are some of the most important things to me as a teacher. There are so many fun and exciting things about 4th grade, and I look forward to a phenomenal year ahead!
