Math Instructional Coach

I am so excited to be part of the East Ridge Family.  I graduated from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada in 1994 and taught middle school for about 7 years.  During that time I took a sabatical and taught English in South Korea for a year and 1/2.  After meeting my husband, we moved to Bowling Green, KY where I taught 5 grade for 7 years.  We then moved to Chattanooga.  I taught 5th grade at Brown Academy for 6 years,and then moved to ERE.  I spent one year in 4th, moved to 5th and now I am the Math Instructional Coach.

My job is to work with teachers in math, share different stratgies for teaching math, and instructing students in math.   I get the best of both worlds:  I still get to spend time with kids, but I also get to mentor and help teachers become the best they possibly can.

I love to travel, snorkel and cook.  I've been married for 16 years and we have a fur baby named Winnie the Pooch.
