I am very excited to begin this 2021-2022 school year at Thomas County Middle School. I am ready to "reset" and begin a new school year in a new position! This will be my 6th year teaching 5th grade. Previously, I have had the chance to work with 1st and 8th grades. This year, I will be joining 5th Grade MERIT Bravo Company as the social studies teacher. Our team consists of four teachers: Mrs. Rigdon (Math), Mrs. Hayes (ELA), Mrs. Lanatta (Science), and I (Social Studies). I will also be helping Mrs. Hayes (5th MERIT ELA) with the Future Problem Solving Club and am currently a sponsor of TCMS Student Council.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2013 with a Bachelor's of Science in Middle Grades Education with an emphasis in Science and Social Studies. I am also certified in Middle Grades Math and Early Childhood Education. In 2018, I graduated with my Masters of Education in Math and Science from Valdosta State University. Currently, I am working on my Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction through Piedmont College.
In my spare time, I love baking and loving on my cows and goats! I also spend time with family and friends as much as I can.
I look forward to meeting and working with the upcoming 5th grade MERIT students at TCMS! "Go Jackets!"
