Go Mocs!  I graduated from UTC in 2005 with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  As a young student I also attended East Ridge High School, Middle School, and East Ridge Elementary as well as McBrien.


This will be my 12th year teaching in First Grade and my 7th year at ERES!  I was formerly a First Grade teacher at McBrien Elementary before its closing in 2010.


Always be a little kinder than necessary.

-J.M. Barrie


I was born and raised in East Ridge.  I met my husband while in high school and we have two young children Eli, 7 and Emily,1!  We are a very musical family and have a love for Japanese food!  I love to bake and I also play piano and sing.  My husband and son are big Ninja Warrior fans and my sweet Emily loves to dance.  As a family we cheer for the V-O-L-S and on occasion like to watch the CFC play soccer!
