Subjects Taught
Third Grade

Education

I graduated from Florida State University with a fashion merchandising degree in 2006. Go Noles! After realizing that was not were my true life's passion lies, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I later attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and graduated with my Masters of Education in Elementary Education in 2011. 



Experience

I received my degree in Fashion Merchandising from Florida State in 2006. After graduation I began working as a store manager at Hollister. I then worked at Target as a store manager. Realizing I was unhappy with my job choices, I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. After graduating from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, with my master's degree in Elementary Education, I began teaching 2nd grade in Florida. After that I moved up to Tennessee again and started teaching 3rd grade at Harrison Elementary. This will be my third year teaching at Harrison.



Bio

I was born in Memphis, TN. At the age of 4, my family moved to Mt. Pleasant, SC. From there we moved to Daphne, AL when I was in 5th grade, and then in 7th grade to Knoxville, TN. In 9th grade, we relocated once again to Melbourne, FL. I graduated high school from Melbourne High School in 2001. I attended Florida State University and graduated with my degree in Fashion Merchandising in 2006. After graduation I moved back to Melbourne and worked as a store manager at Hollister. I decided I needed a big change in my life and I moved up to Chattanooga, TN, since my parents had moved up there a few years earlier. I went back to school to get my masters in elementary education at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I graduated from there in 2011, and moved back to Melbourne, FL to be with my fiance at the time. My now husband, Dylan, and I got married in July 2011 in Satellite Beach, FL. We lived there for the following 2 years. I worked as a store manager at Target for a couple of months while looking for a teaching job. I then got an interim teaching job at Harbor City Elementary teaching 2nd grade. Not having a position for the following year, my husband and I decided to move back to Chattanooga for more job opportunities. Since then I have been happily employed at Harrison! This will be my third year teaching 3rd grade.
