I was born and raised in Jackson, TN and I am the fifth out of six children.  Immediately after graduating high school I attended the local community college and trained to become a paramedic.  I worked as a paramedic for three years (2004-2007) before moving to Idaho and completing my bachelor's degree in elementary education at Brigham Young University Idaho.  Upon completing my degree I moved back to Jackson, TN and taught first and second grade at Isaac Lane Elementary (2011-2014).  Upon moving to Memphis, I taught kindergarten (2014-2016), second grade (2017-2018) and fifth-grade math (2018-2019) at White Station Elementary.  I am excited to join the Bon Lin Middle family and teach sixth-grade math this school year.  Go Lynx!
All children are capable of learning and have a right to learn.  I am also a firm believer in physical activity as "Children must be healthy to learn and learn to be healthy." Children learn best when nurtured and challenged in an environment they feel safe enough to take academic risks in.  Mistakes are a gateway for learning.  Students will develop the confidence to overcome academic challenges.  My objective is to prepare children to become contributing members of society by nurturing them physically, academically, socially, and emotionally.
