About Me

I have been a regular education classroom teacher, a gifted education teacher, and a librarian. I attended the University of Memphis and Union University. I am married to Mr. Tanner, and we have three daughters. In my spare time, I love to travel, walk at Shelby Farms, and attend my grandsons' sporting events. I am always reading several books at a time. Some of my favorite children's authors are Ashley Bryan, Tony DiTerlizzi, C. S. Lewis, Leo Lionni, Patricia Polacco, and Rick Riordan.


You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
