5th Grade Teacher, Assistant Softball Coach
Where do you call home?
My dad was in the Air Force, so we moved. I was born in Virginia and lived in Washington, D.C. but I spent the majority of my childhood in Memphis. Even though I've lived in Jackson longer than anywhere else, I still call Memphis home.
How long have you been teaching?
Over 10 years
What is your favorite part about teaching?
I really enjoy being around kids. Watching the students grow and learn is fascinating as well as rewarding.
What is your favorite thing about USJ?
The parental support at USJ is amazing and very much appreciated. As a former athlete that had tens of fans watching my games, I appreciate the school spirit of the students and parents. It is really neat to see the stands packed with red and blue cheering for the U.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I love to travel. I've been to 23 countries, 5 continents, and 40 states.
