Subjects Taught
8th Grade Language Arts


     While I was mostly educated in the School of Hard Knocks,  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Drafting and Design with many undergraduate classes in art and education from Murray State University in Kentucky.  I loved college so much that I kept at it!  Upon moving to Georgia, I became an official teacher through the University of Georgia, and then received my Masters in Special Education from Piedmont College.  I have also participated in certification programs to become a Reading specialist, English as a Second Language specialist, and a Kansas Learning Strategies specialist (specifically writing strategies).  I am excited to continue to grow in my own education as my students challenge me with their own unique voices and styles.


     Franklin County is my teaching home; I could not think of a better place to grow as an educator than right here!  I began teaching various and sundry grades at Royston Elementary in 2004.  Mrs. Till took a big chance on a young, loud, but very enthusiastic person, and I will never forget it.  Then, in 2007, I was allowed the honor of moving to the middle school.  I love it here at FCMS and am always eager to see what my students teach me.
