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 (I typically read 2-3 books a month), running (mostly 5k-10ks, I did a half marathon last year!), traveling, and the Tennessee Vols. I taught in Italy during the summer of 2015. Once summer school was over, my friends and I traveled around Austria and Germany, which was a lot of fun,
 
In May, my wonderful fiance and I are getting married.  We have 2 black cats named Nox and Leia and a black lab named Tali. We love Star Wars and Harry Potter!

 Please feel free to contact me. Email is the easiest way to communicate, I typically respond to email before school and after school until 4:30. 
 
Let's have a great year!
