    This is my second year at Cumming Elementary however, it’s my 30th year in education! I have my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Elementary Education from the University of Florida with certifications in Early Education, Middle Grades ELA, Social Studies & Math, ESOL and Special Education. I’ve taught various levels from Pre-K thru college, been a Preschool Administrator and worked with Pre-K and K teachers as a coach. I am married to my college sweetheart; Boris and we have three amazing boys. Boris A. is a grad student at UGA, Shane, a senior and Jack, a sophomore at Lambert. When I am not at school you can usually find me reading, running, walking my crazy dogs, Macie and Griff or spending time with my family.

    I am so excited to start another wonderful year at CES! This year will be my sixth year teaching and my fourth year at Cumming. Math and Science are a passion of mine and I am thrilled to get to share them with my students. I obtained my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education this past July from the University of West Georgia. I live in Gainesville with my husband, two-year-old son, and two dogs. I look forward to beginning a new adventure with new friends this year!

    I am thrilled to begin my fourth year teaching fifth grade at Cumming Elementary! Since before starting kindergarten, I've had a love for school, especially reading, and I always knew I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. I became a Georgia Bulldog and first earned my bachelor's degree in Foreign Language Education. While teaching Spanish for two years and then teaching kindergarten for ten. I also earned by certification in Early Childhood Education, an ESOL endorsement, and my master's degree in curriculum, instruction, and assessment. In moving back to north Georgia in 2016, I graduated all the way to fifth grade, and CES has been amazing! My husband and I are looking forward to our son, Oliver joining the Cougar Nation in PreK this year. Our one-year old Charlotte can't wait to be a Cumming Cougar in the future. Cumming Elementary is remarkable place with amazing students, teachers, and families, and I am proud to be part of it.
