Harmony Elementary is my second home. This is my 26th year here. I spent 24 years teaching kindergarten and this is my second year in second grade.

I have a wonderful husband of 25 years - Richard and my son Matthew is a 10th grader at Mountain View High School. We have a four legged daughter, a dog, Kiki.

Welcome to Harmony! I truly love teaching and watching students learn and grow everyday. I received my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Georgia, my Reading Recovery training from Georgia State University, and my Masters in Reading Education from Nova Southeastern University. This is my 24th year teaching. My experience has been in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 4th grade, Reading Recovery, EIP and Academic Coaching. My favorite grade to teach is 1st grade! This is my 7th year at Harmony and I love working here.

I live up at Lake Lanier with my husband of 22 years and we have two wonderful boys at home--ages 13 and 8. In my free time, I love playing with my boys, boating, traveling, taking photographs, and making photo books on Shutterfly.

I have been married to my husband, Justin, for 18 wonderful years! We have one son, Aiden, who is in 5th grade. He has blessed our lives in so many ways!

I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University. I also have a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Georgia State University. I have 6 years of teaching experience ranging from kindergarten- 2nd grade. When I am not teaching I love to read, play tennis, garden, and spend time with my family.

I recently graduated from Georgia Gwinnett College and have been specializing in Early Childhood Education and student teaching at various schools across Gwinnett County for the last 3 years.  I look forward to making learning fun and enjoyable for your child. I also care deeply about your child's emotional and intellectual needs. Please let me if there is anything I can do to make their day better! In my free time I love to cook healthy recipes, exercise, and watch movies. I also love decorating and coffee. I look forward to meeting you and your child soon! It's going to be a great year!
