In 1987, I began my teaching journey, and I have taught every age from babies to fifth grade as well as college and graduate school in Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Colorado, and Virginia. Any connections there??
My undergrad years were spent at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville where I earned a B.A. in English and Psychology. Soon after, I completed an M.A.T. in curriculum and instruction at The University of Memphis. In addition to these degrees, I have completed more graduate work at The University of Maryland and The University of Colorado, Denver.
I am a mom of two young adult daughters and a cute Maltese dog. When I am not teaching, you can find me traveling, reading, hiking, or cooking.
