Hello all!  I am so excited to get to know you and your child this year.  Here is a little information so that you can know more about me.  I grew up in Knoxville and graduated from Karns High School in 2000.  After that, I immediately started attending the University of Tennessee, GO VOLS!!  While there, I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a Minor in Elementary Education.  A week after graduation I married my college sweetheart, and Clinton native, Marcus.    We have two amazing children Sydny and Matthew.  I then went into the master's program at UT and obtained my Master's degree in Elementary Education with a concentration on Reading Education.  I began working at Clinton Elementary in 2005.  I have taught 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade.  I am currently teaching 5th grade Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies and absolutely love it!  If you have and questions or comments, feel free to contact me anytime.  I love talking to parents and getting them involved in their child's education!
