I am excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher! I will be teaching reading and social studies. I began my teaching career at Fort Loudoun Middle School and taught both 7th and 8th grade reading. I transferred to Loudon Elementary School and am beginning my 6th year teaching 5th grade.
I am a life-long resident of Loudon. I was a student at Loudon Elementary School myself many years ago. One of my fondest memories of elementary school was in 4th grade. My teacher would read aloud to the class and bring the books alive for me. I have a love of reading and try to help my students develop a love of reading.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Mike. We just celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary. We have two sons, Dain and Ryan. They are both married. Dain is in the U.S. Airforce, and he and Kenzie are stationed in Warner Robbins, Georgia. Ryan is a supervisor at Malibu Boats, and he and Taylor live in Loudon. We have a precious dog named Ellie Mae. She is a pug and spoiled rotten. My hobbies include reading as much as I can, cross-stitching and gardening.
