Subjects Taught
2nd Grade


I grew up in Oak Ridge, Tennessese, where I attended school from K-12.  I graduated from Carson-Newman College with a degree in Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education.  I returned to CN and obtained my Masters of Education degree a few years later.


I taught Kindergarten for 7 years at Bonny Kate Elementary School in Knox County, TN.  After taking several years away from public education to stay at home with my children.  During that time, I supervised student teachers at Carson-Newman College and worked at the Carson-Newman Child Development Lab.  Returning to the classroom in 2004, I have been teaching second grade (my favorite!)


I am a happy mom and wife to my sons, Logan (23) and Grayson (19) and husband, Ricke (better not tell his age!)  I enjoy running, reading, singing and playing the piano.  My family loves to hike together in the Smoky Mountains and recently took a dream vacation to Alaska!
