Fifth Grade


I am a native of Chattanooga and graduated from Tyner High School in 1990.  I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching and a BS in Exercise Physiology from East Tennessee State University.  I have 14 years of teaching experience And this is my 5th year in 5th grade at OES.  Formerly I taught at East Ridge Middle School in 6th and 7th grade.  

On a personal note, I am married to my husband, Frank, for 17 years and we have two sons, Andrew and John.  Both of my sons attend OES.  Andrew is in 5th grade and John is in 3rd grade.  

I enjoy playing tennis, spending time with family and friends, photography, and serving with various ministries in the area.  I am also a senior director with Thirty-one Gifts and help manage a team of about 134 consultants.

I love seeing the light bulb go off when students understand and can utilize the information being taught in class.  I value the students and the wonderful contributions they can make to our class and the world.
