From a young age, I’ve always had a sense of motivation and passion driving me forward. Whether it’s exploring unique opportunities, learning additional skills, or meeting new people, I bring these values to every experience throughout my life on a personal and professional level. I am currently pursuing a Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction, with a focus on secondary school instruction, at Tennessee State University. This upcoming school year I will begin my eighth year of teaching at Cheatham Middle School. This year has me back in an 8th grade classroom teaching math (always my 1st choice). Outside of my professional pursuits, I am married to my best friend and mommy to my mini-me. She's starting middle school this year so we'll finally be in the same building. I love to travel, cook, and enjoy the outdoors.
