Subjects Taught


 I graduated from Kaiserslautern American High School in Germany.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.

 I eaened my Master's degree in Gifted Services from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.


I began my teaching career with the Dallas Independent School District in Dallas, Texas. I taught elementary education there for 8 years.  At the end of that time I moved to Chattanooga and began teaching here, where I have remained for the last 22 years. For the first part of my career I taught elementary aged children.  After moving to Chattanooga I was given the opportunity to teach middle school.  My first assignment was 8th grade American History and I loved it!  Up until then it was the most fun and interesting subject I had ever gotten to teach. Since then I've taught 7th grade geography, 6th grade history, 8th grade reading/language arts and STEM.  For the last 11 years I have worked exclusively with intellectually gifted students. Now I am privileged to work with students at Loftis Middle, Lookout Valley Elementary, and Brown International Academy.
