I attended Middle Tennessee Christian School and Christiana Elementary before graduating from Riverdale High School.  I graduated from MTSU in 2003 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. 







 I have been teaching at Community Elementary School since 2003.  I have taught first and second grades, but first grade is my favorite.  I love the growth that I see each day in my students, and feel blessed to be a part of my students' lives.   I love my students and can't wait to see my first class of first graders graduate in 2015!



I live in Murfreesboro with my awesome husband Jason and our amazing two little boys.  We are anxiously awaiting the birth of our third child in October.  I love my family, my dogs, Alabama football, reading, kayaking, and being outside.
