Education

I graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a BS in Psychology and minor in Elementary Education. The following year I received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from UTK, as well.  Part of my Master's program included a year-long internship in Knox County elementary schools.



Experience

This year will be my 5th year at Nolan!  I taught 5th grade my first year at Nolan, and I've taught kindergarten ever since.  In addition, my year-long internship with Knox County schools was in a kindergarten classroom.



Bio

I'm originally from Crossville, Tennessee. After spending 5 years at UTK, I made many wonderful friends from the Chattanooga area who convinced me to apply for jobs with Hamilton County. I've loved my last few years as a Chattanoogan and as a Nolan Knight!  I feel very blessed to be a part of this community.  My goal as a teacher is to create an environment of joyful learning.  I love seeing students get excited to share what they've learned and their experiences.  I believe that tapping into students' enthusiasm is the key to creating lifelong learners.
