• Reading is the heart and soul of teaching to me.  I have been teaching at Griffith Elementary for almost 20 years.  I taught first grade for 10 years, third grade for 8 years, and this is my second year back in first grade. I love to see students learn to read and excel in their ability to read!

    I am married to a wonderful husband, have a sweet daughter, and also have two crazy dogs.  We like to be outside, fishing, on the boat, or just sitting around a campfire roasting marshmallows.  I am originally from Red Bank and went to UTC for my bachelor's degree.  I also graduated from Tennessee Tech with a masters degree and an educational specialist degree.  

    I believe every child loves to read, they just have to find the right books. I love teaching at Griffith Elementary School!
