Subjects Taught
6th grade ELA/LIT, Special Education


I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Middle Grades English Language Arts and Social Studies from the University of West Georgia in 2013. I became Special Education General Curriculum Certified shortly thereafter. I also obtained my Master's in Reading Instruction from the University of West Georgia.


This year marks my 4th year teaching here at Bay Springs. I have taught 6th and 8th grade English Language Arts and Literature. I teach Resource and Co-Taught classes. I love being a Bay Springs Bobcat!


I grew up a short drive away in Heard County, GA. I attended Centralhatchee Elementary and Heard County High School. I live less than 1/16 of a mile from the home I grew up in. I have 2 daughters. One in high school at Heard County. My other daughter attends the University of West Georgia, where she is studying to become a Teacher. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, baking, and traveling. 

I hope to instill an enjoyment of reading in my students, and to help them become more proficient readers, writers, and thinkers.
