I graduated from East Tennessee State University in May of 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I am thrilled that I get to teach 4th grade at Clinton Elementary School, which is the school I attended for 2nd and 3rd grade!


I have been fortunate to have a variety of teaching experiences in the last few years.  I was an interim 6th grade math teacher at Norwood Middle School in Oliver Springs in the Spring of 2012.  Later in 2012 my husband and I moved to Durham, North Carolina where I taught 2nd grade from August 2012 to June 2013.  I taught fifth and third grade at Clinton City Schools for two years.  I am excited to teach 4th grade Reading and Social Studies at CES for my third year!


I moved to Clinton while I was in 2nd grade, and with the exception of college and one year, I have been able to call this sweet little town my home.  I attended Clinton Elementary School for 2nd and 3rd grade, and then I attended Anderson County Schools.  I love this place, and I couldn't be happier that I am teaching here for the 5th year in a row.  My husband, Chris, and I live in Clinton with our daughter, Abigail, and our dog named Baby.
