About the teacher


I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Middle Tennessee State University.

I also hold a Master's Degree in Education from Tusculum College.



This year will be my 34th year of teaching. I began my teaching career at Central Elementary in Wartburg, Tennessee where I taught 6 years in Special Education and 4 years in fourth grade. I have taught the past 23 years in Roane County. These years have been spent teaching third grade at the former Dyllis Elementary and now Dyllis Springs Elementary. This year will be a new challenge for me as I return back to 4th grade teaching ELA.
