Faculty Bio

This will be the start of my 16th year teaching science. I started teaching in West Tennessee at the high school level. In 2014 I decided to move back to East Tennessee to be closer to family. I am truly blessed to be able to work at Alcoa. The kids love school and the community is so supportive of the school system. 
I worked at Alcoa High School for 5 years before making the jump to the middle school level. I am always amazed at the excitement 8th graders bring to school every day and their willingness to share their thoughts and participate. 
I have 12 years experience teaching high school chemistry and 3 years experience in AP Chemistry. I have also taught environmental science, physical science, and biology. 
For the last 3 years I have been teaching 8th grade science and love working with the students.
