About Me

Hello Ellendale parents and students! I am very excited for this upcoming school year, and I look forward to working with you and your child. 
I was born and raised in Millington, TN. I graduated from The University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a Bachelor's in English Language Arts, and I received a Master's in Teaching from The University of Memphis. 
I enjoy reading, running, and traveling during breaks. I taught in Italy during the summer of 2015. Once summer school was over, my friends and I traveled around Austria and Germany. 
In January, I adopted a black cat who I named Nox. I love the Harry Potter series, so I named him after a piece in the books. 
In December, I am running the St. Jude Half-Marathon!
Please feel free to contact me. I typically respond to email before school and after school until 4:30. 
Let's have a great year!

Scholastic Book Orders

Hi parents!
I am sending home a Scholastic book order form with your child today. If you would like to order your child a book (or books!), please fill out the form and return with your student by October 20th. If you would like to order online yourself, the code for my classroom is NYDYY. When you use this code, it increases my ability to order more books for your children.
Thank you!
