I have been in the teaching field for 19 years. I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades and been in administration. I currently teach 4th grade math and science. When I am not teaching, I love to be outside in the garden or working with the animals on my farm.

I believe that we all can learn from one another. We must be kind and respectful as we build relationships and grow personally.

When I think of East Ridge Elementary School, I don't think of it as a place that I work, I think of it as family. What does it mean to be a family? When I think of family, I think of encouragement in hard times. I think of looking at the big picture and finding ways to make life better. Even if we have disagreements and differing opinions, we can look past that to find common ground because we love each other. That is what we do at ERES!

I have major privilege this year to be a Project Inspire Multi-classroom Instructor. This means that there will be two of us teachers working together to meet the needs of our students. Please help me welcome Ms. Kelsey Butler this year to be part of our team. I know it will be a wonderful year!
