I am a Georgia native. I was born in Augusta and raised in DeKalb County. I am a product of Dekalb County Schools and returned to teach in DeKalb after completing my undergraduate degree from Georgia State University. I believe in continuing my own education and have completed my Master's degree from Grand Canyon University and my Educational Specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial in Tennessee. I've had the pleasure of educating children in DeKalb County for 5 years and most recently I have taught in Atlanta Public Schools for the past 4 years. I have a wide variety of experiences including teaching Kindergarten, 1st grade, and Special Education grades K, 1st, 2nd, & 5th. Personally, I love to read and my passion is teaching students. I cannot explain the joy I receive from the smiles on my student's faces. We are truly a family. I'm looking forward to this year and especially maintaining a positive learning environment. I want all my students to LOVE learning and LOVE learning at THES!
