Degrees and Certifications:
I am so thankful to get to work at the "Greatest Little School in the World!" I was born and raised in Sandy Springs, Georgia. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, followed by a master’s through American College of Education. Following graduation, I accepted a 3rd Grade teaching position at St. Jude the Apostle Elementary School. After two years of teaching there, I decided to take an early sabbatical and move out west to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I had the time of my life, but I missed teaching. I returned to teach 1st and 3rd grade in Fulton County, followed by my current position at Decatur City Schools. My husband John and I live with our two fur babies, Harriet and Dutch. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside with my husband, family, friends, and love of my life – my dog, Harriet. I also am a HUGE Georgia Bulldog fan and love cheering them on during football season, and recently Atlanta United as well!
