Teacher Bio

I received my Bachelor's of Music Education from Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.
I received my Master's degree in Counseling from Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 
I also have 30 additional credit hours of Master's level work focusing on Middle Level Education. 
Before moving "South" I was a teacher in Michigan for 9 years. I taught middle school band and choir as well as high school jazz band and percussion ensemble. 
When I got married and moved to the warmer states, I started working with the US Military as a counselor for our military students. This opportunity allowed me to travel throughout Europe and the UK, living and working wherever our service members and their families are stationed. 
This was a wonderful experience that I absolutely enjoyed, however, I realized how much I missed being in the classroom and teaching middle school students... so... here I am! I am thrilled to be here at Sycamore Middle School!
My husband, Wesley, and I live in Clarksville with our sweet dog, Grayson! We enjoy geocaching, traveling, scavenger hunts, and solving corn mazes! I like reading, a lot! And yes, I like Reality TV shows... Survivor is my favorite!
