Hi! Welcome to my home page! I am a reading teacher here at The Plains Elementary and I am very excited to be working with more wonderful students in my 8th year in this position. I have also taught kindergarten, 2nd grade and 3rd grade in our building.
I was born and grew up in Athens, and went to East Elementary, Athens Middle School and Athens High School. I graduated from Ohio University in 1991 and began my teaching career in Houston, Texas with 3rd graders. I came back to Athens and taught 5th grade, 2nd grade and 1st grade at Morrison Elementary. After that I moved to Florida and taught 3rd graders and then a mixed age class of 3rd and 4th graders. For a while after that, my husband, 2 sons and I lived in Los Angeles before we moved back to Ohio. When I came back, I settled here at The Plains Elementary where I have taught for the last 13 years.
I live in Athens now with my almost 3 year old son. When I am not a work I spend most of time playing with my son at home or one of the many parks in the area. I have seen many of you while we are out playing and that is always fun! I also enjoy going for walks, and of course, reading!
I am looking forward to a great year with all of you!
