Subjects Taught
Fifth Grade


I am an East Tennessee State University (ETSU) graduate. I received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Education degree both in Elementary Education.


This will be my 3rd year at HES and I could not be more excited to be teaching another year of fabulous 5th graders! I will be teaching 5th grade science, social studies, and writing.


I grew up here in Chattanooga, Tennessee, moving away only to attend college. Upon graduating college at ETSU, I received my first teaching job here in Chattanooga and happily moved back. I have always loved school and have known since I was little that I desired to be a teacher. I stuck with that dream and I absolutely love what I do.

In my spare time my favorite thing to do is TRAVEL! This is a passion of mine and there are a trillion places that I must visit. I visited Iceland and Italy recently, and WOW what amazing experiences those were! I descended down the eye of a volcano, visited ancient Roman ruins, and went horseback riding through lava fields. Being the 5th grade science teacher, I love being able to relate these life experiences to our science curriculum!
