About me:

Welcome to my class page, which will more than likely be a continual work in progress!  I figure the best place to start is by telling you just a little about myself.  I was born and raised in Alcoa, TN.  After graduating high school, I attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN.  There I received a Bachelor of Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice and Sociology.  I stayed in middle Tennessee for about a year and half working in the mental health field with 'at risk' youth.  It was during this time of working with 'at risk' youth that I discovered my desire to become an educator.  I decided to apply for what was once known as the Lyndhurst Program through the University of Tennessee and was accepted.  It was through this program, that consisted of a year long internship coupled with education classes, that I received my Masters of Science in Elementary Education K-8.  In 2006 I started teaching at Alcoa Middle School and have been here ever since.  I'm so happy to have the opportunity to teach where I grew up, and as always "It's Great to be an Alcoa Tornado"!!!!
