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!
