ABOUT ME

Hiwassee College, A.A. (1992)
Tusculum College, B.S. in Elementary Education (2008)
 
I began teaching at Loudon Elementary School in 2008. I have taught 4th grade, 1st grade, and am currently beginning my fourth year as a Kindergarten teacher.
 
The thing I remember most from my elementary school years was the year I was going into the third grade.  My kindergarten teacher had moved to third grade and I desperately wanted to be in her class.  There was another third grade teacher whose class I desperately DID NOT want to be in.  I had heard how strict and mean she was, and I was terrified to be in her class.  On the day my mom and I went to the school to see the class lists, I was so worried I cried during the entire drive over.  When we arrived at the school and checked the lists, sure enough, I had been placed with the teacher I did not want.  I was so upset.  My mom assured me everything would be fine, to just remember to follow her rules and work hard.  As I look back, I know without a doubt that my third grade year was one of my best years in elementary school.  I learned that it was wrong to judge people before you get to know them.  Mrs. Agnes Kilpatrick was one of the best teachers I ever had.  She was never mean, but she had high expectations in both academics and behavior.  She pushed us to be our best selves.  She helped me develop a love of reading and math that I carry with me to this day.
 
My husband, Scott, and I have been married for 26 years.  We have three sons- Matthew, Adam, and Zachary.  We share our home with our cat, Tabby.  I enjoy camping, going to the beach, watching movies, spending time with my family, and reading.
