Hello parents and students! I am so excited to be teaching your child at Big Creek this year! I grew up in Gwinnett county, graduating from Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross, and continuing my education at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. I graduated with a degree in elementary education and have received my gifted certification. Teaching and working with children has always been a passion of mine. I have had the wonderful privilege of working with children in and out of the country, in public and private school settings, and in the community. I began teaching in 2003, where I taught middle school math for six years before choosing to stay home with my young children. Soon after, I went back to teaching in Gwinnett county where I taught 4th grade for two years before joining Big Creek in 2017.
