Bio

I am super excited to be Villa Rica Elementary's EIP teacher this year! As a classroom teacher, I hold an expectation of success for every learner that enters my classroom. In my experience, both parental and community involvement are essential to a successful classroom and school environment. It is my belief that students should be given the opportunity to develop into lifelong learners through a balanced education that addresses the needs of the individual as well as the group, across the curricular mosaic. 

I earned my undergraduate and graduate degree from the University of West Georgia. I have over 20 years of teaching experience in the elementary setting, having taught Pre-K, First, Second, Third, Special Education, and EIP Reading. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have 2 beautiful girls and 1 adorable dog.  Both of my girls love to play softball, so if I am not in the classroom teaching, you will find me on the field cheering my daughters on.
