I am originally from a small town in north Louisiana. My family and I moved to Catoosa County in 1998. My bachelors degree is from Louisiana Tech University and my masters degree is from the University of West Georgia. I have been married for the past 30 years to Mark Girod and we have 3 wonderful daughters: Lexie, 28 who is a vascular tech in Chattanooga, Haley, 26 as a project manager in Atlanta, and Mallory, 17 who is a Senior at Heritage High School. 

This is my 17th year teaching in Catoosa County and my 13th year at Woodstation Elementary School. I will be teaching 5th grade math for the 2016-2017 school year.
