I am excited to begin my 12th 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 2018-2019 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 monarch butterflies migrating in the fall without thinking about this precious lady.
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 four special grandsons - Dalton, Case, Boyd, and Paxton. 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.
