As well as being a teacher, I am a mother and wife. I have two daughters. Harper is 5 and Celia is 3. I married my high school sweetheart, Ben. We have been blissfully married for 9 years. We are originally from Scottsboro, AL but have been living in Chattanooga for 11 years now. We love Chattanooga!

We live in a house divided. I am a huge Auburn fan (War Eagle!) and my husband is an avid Alabama fan (Boo!). Fall is fun at my house!

We are a busy family that enjoys traveling (my husband and I just got back from a 2 week trip to Europe), going to concerts, watching movies, playing princess and Legos, and grilling out. In my personal time I enjoy reading, gardening, traveling, time with friends, and developing my craft as a teacher.

Literacy is my favorite subject. Reading is magical and rewarding. Writing is creative and freeing. My hope is that I pass my love of literacy along to the students. Learning should be fun. I love thinking of new ways to help children enjoy their education. 

CSAS has been such a fulfilling experience. The educational philosophy, dedicated staff, and supportive administration provide a wonderful facility for learning. I am proud to send both of my children to CSAS soon!
