Bio

I am a 27 year veteran teacher. I began my teaching career in Mobile County, Alabama at Saraland Elementary School. I taught Kindergarten for 10 years and then 2nd Grade for 4 years. I moved to Catoosa County and joined the Ringgold Primary Family teaching 2nd grade. When Woodstation opened in the 2003-04 school year, Joan DeRose asked me to move with her. I love this area and consider it " God's Country". I began my time here at Woodstaton teaching 4th grade. I moved to the Resource department 4 years ago. I have been a co-teacher in 2nd and 3rd grades and have taught the the Resource classes in all academic areas.  My goal is to teach students to THINK, to give them academic experiences that give them a wealth of knowledge to draw from in all areas of life. I love to read and try to share that with my students. I also consider myself a lifelong learner. I am truly blessed to work with such a wonderful group of students, parents and coworkers.
