Hello Parents and Students! I am excited about the opportunity work with an amazing staff here at Thurman Francis Arts Academy.  This begins my 16th year as an educator. My experience includes teaching grades 5-8 (Math/Science) and one year as an Academic Interventionist (Reading/Math K-5).  I also serve as a gifted instructor through Vanderbilt University's Programs for Talented Youth.
I received my B.S. (Computing Sciences), M.Ed (Curriculum and Instruction), and Ed.S (Administration and Supervision) from Freed-Hardeman University. In my spare time I enjoying traveling with my family. Most of my weekends are spent traveling with my sons to baseball and basketball tournaments.
I am thankful for the opportunity to serve at TFAA and look forward to a great school year!
