About the Teacher

Shelbyville has been my home since 1990. I attended Harris Middle school and graduated from Shelbyville Central in 1996. After taking some time off to start a family, I went back to school in 2005. I graduated from Tennessee Tech University in 2009 with a B.S. in Elementary Education. In 2019, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Lipscomb University having earned a degree in school administration. 
I taught 3rd grade science and social studies at Thomas Magnet School from 2009-2020. I loved every aspect of third grade, but the Lord had a different plan for me. So in 2021, I moved to 4th & 5th grade! I am now completely 5th grade science & social studies!
I have been married for 26 years to my amazing husband, Scott. We have two beautiful children, Matthew and Alicia, and a precious grandbaby, Carson. We also have an English bulldog named Pebbles, and a huge flock of ducks and chickens. 

I adore being a teacher! Spending time with children makes my heart happy. 💕
