Teacher Information

I am one of two 8th grade math teachers. I teach three 8th grade math classes and one Integrated Math 1 class.


I was born in Franklin, Tennessee. I lived in Antioch, Tennessee until I was seven years old. In 1969, my family moved to Robertson County. My dad, brother, and nephews still operate that dairy farm north of Springfield, Tennessee. I graduated from Jo Byrns High School in Cedar Hill, Tennessee. Prior to teaching, I worked for the United States Postal Service in Springfield as a city letter carrier.


I have a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I earned these degrees from Austin Peay State University.


Prior to teaching at Sycamore Middle, I taught 8th grade math, prealgebra, and Algebra 1 at Springfield Middle from January 2000 until May 2009.


I began teaching at Sycamore Middle in fall of 2009 when I moved to Kingston Springs. 


I have five children, one daughter-in-law, and four sons-in-law and am expecting my first grandchildren--two granddaughters in 2019!
