I was raised on a family farm on the plains of South Dakota. My elementary school was literally a one-room school house. It was great fun! I still love the outdoors. In family tradition, I joined the Army and was an MP. I have lived in Korea, Panama, Germany, and several states. When I was in First Grade I never dreamed I would one day tour Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Florence, Prague, Panama City, and Seoul. I want our children to have these dreams! I graduated from APSU and earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching First Grade here at Minglewood since 1996. Prior to this position, I taught Fourth Grade at Heidelberg, Germany for DODDS, and substitute taught in nearly all grades. All these experiences have prepared me to help your child be successful in First Grade. I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
