<About Me>
I graduated from UTC in December of 2016. In the spring of 2017, I started my teaching career at Orchard Knob Middle School. I teach English as a Second Language for all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Learners.

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I went into college to earn a degree is Exceptional Education. It wasn't until going on mission trips to Central America that I found my love for teaching and working with students who speak different languages. While in college, I earned an endorsement to teach English as a Second Language. My passion is to teach English to students to help them be successful, to love and serve the immigrant families in our community, and to provide resources to families. 

I was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have been married for 2 year. My husband is an ICU nurse and is working towards a degree to become a Nurse Practitioner.
