Upon graduating from college, I began teaching 5th grade.  My husband and I moved around the country with his job, and I had the opportunity to teach in different schools and different grades.  In all, I have taught grades 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th in Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.  Upon moving back to Tennessee, I was able to stay at home and raise our children during their younger years.  This is my fifth year back to teaching, and I have enjoyed three years in 3rd grade and my second year in 5th grade here at Finley School.


My husband, Tim, and I have been married for almost 25 years, and we have three children.  Our two oldest, Katie and Emily, are both students at UTChattanooga, and our youngest, Mason, is in the 8th grade.  We have recently added a sweet golden retriever puppy named Maggie to our family.  We are members of First United Methodist Church, and I am an active participant in Dyer County Relay for Life, being a cancer survivor myself.
