I began teaching fourth grade here at Community Elementary in 2006. I taught fourth grade for seven years and taught third grade for the past five years. I am currently co-teaching third grade with Mrs. Collier.



I am the youngest of eight children. I was born and raised on a cattle ranch in the southwestern boot of NM. One crazy fact is that I rode the bus 80 miles to school and then another 80 miles back home after school!

I met and married my best friend and we have been together for 30 years now. My husband's company transfered him here to the Middle Tennessee area when he was promoted. We have lived here since 1995. We have two children and our family sports teams are the Chicago Cubs, and the Tennessee Titans.
