Where do you call home?
Jackson, Tennessee

How long have you been teaching?
I have taught for a total of 29 years. This is my 23rd year at USJ.

What is your favorite part about your job?
I love working with the students and watching them appreciate literature. I teach with wonderful educators, too.

What is you favorite thing about USJ?
My favorite thing about USJ is the family atmosphere. We are all supportive of each other. USJ has many traditions that have helped to create a family atmosphere. When someone or a family at our school suffers, we are there to support them with our love and kindness. USJ has been a part of my life for a long time, and I cherish the memories and friendships that I have made here.

What is a fun fact about yourself?
I am a graduate of Old Hickory Academy (1974), so I have been at this school for a long time. I was on the very first cheerleading squad this school ever had!
