I am excited to begin my 14th year of teaching at Loudon Elementary School and working on an amazing team to serve the children in 2nd Grade. Previously, I have taught in Kindergarten through Third Grade for Anderson and Hancock Counties. I am excited about beginning the 2020-2021 school year at LES!!!
My most memorable memory of my own educational career was when I was in the second grade. Our teacher brought in milkweed pods and showed us how to make birds out of them. It was very impressive, even as a child, that my teacher would take her weekend to walk through weeds to collect seed pods and show us how to convert them into birds. I will never see milkweed pods in the fall without thinking about this precious lady and how she gave of herself to help educate her students.
On a personal note, I have a wonderful husband, Brian, and two lovely daughters, Amanda and Allison. I have two son-in-laws, Grant and Nate, and five special grandsons - Dalton, Case, Boyd, Paxton, and Sutton. I love spending time with them, growing a small garden, going to the mountains, helping in my church, and playing with our dog - Benelli. My favorite food is seefood - I like it ALL!!! My favorite candies are Snickers and Hershey's Kisses.
This year has many challenges for all of us, and I am excited to take this journey with you and your child.
