WELCOME!

Welcome to 4th Grade Math!  

 

I am a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University with a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies, a M.ED. in Curriculum and Instruction, and an Ed.S. in Administration and Supervision. I began my career at West Hills Elementary in Lewisburg, TN teaching grades 3-5 in 1997.  I began teaching at Thurman Francis Arts Academy in 1998. I was fortunate enough to be involved in the planning and implementation as our school transitioned into a magnet program during the 2000-2001 school year.  During this time I taught 5th grade and then transitioned to teaching 4th grade. In my hours away from school I love to work out, read, hang out with family and friends, and watch a good movie. I am happily married with two children, a sixth grader and a eighth grader, who both attend TFAA.

 

I look forward to providing enriching and rigorous learning opportunities to your child as well as an environment that facilitates curiosity and collaboration. I am committed to making sure that my students receive the instruction and support they need to grow and reach their potential. Thank you for the opportunity to work with your child!
