Where do you call home?
I have called Jackson, TN my home for the past 3 years.

How long have you been teaching?
This will be my first year teaching. I am so excited to start my teaching journey at USJ. 

What is your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of teaching is building relationships with students and their families. I also love seeing those “Aha-moments” when students finally grasp new concepts! 

What is a fun fact about yourself?
A fun fact about myself is that I am originally from Wisconsin. I think I was born to be a southern girl, but I enjoy going back to visit my family!
