I completed my student teaching here at Tusculum View, and graduated from ETSU with a bachelor's degree in Education.  I was elated when I was blessed with this 2nd grade position!  This will be my fifth year at Tusculum View Elementary School.  

A little about me:  

I just married my very best friend in the world over the summer, and we recently found out that we are expecting our first little one!  We are very excited about the blessings of the year! 

I recently moved back to Limestone to be closer to my family, which is where I originally grew up.   I love living in the country!

My mother, father, and sister are a huge part of my life.  I spend my weekends with them in Limestone, where I grew up.  They live on a large farm, so I always had different places to explore during my childhood.

I love to go camping, ride my bicycle, and take walks at Tusculum Park! 

I recieved my masters degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction in December 2011.  I am a technology nut, and get pumped about learning and trying new things in the classroom!  I am blessed to work with a great team at an awesome school that I believe wholeheartedly works for the best of each child.
