Bio

Welcome to Battlefield Elementary! I began my career in education in 2007 with my very first 3rd grade class in Augusta, Georgia while my husband was finishing his degree in occupational therapy. Upon completion of his degree, we moved back home to LaFayette, Georgia. I began teaching 5th grade in Rome, Georgia (where I had student taught in college). I worked 4 years there and wanted to teach closer to home which led me right here! I continued my career teaching 5th grade at Battlefield (with 1 year in 4th). After 10 years of teaching, I became the academic coach in 2017-2018. If you are reading this, know that your child is part of the BEST school around.

I am a LaFayette High School class of 2003 graduate. I graduated from Berry College in 2007 with my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I continued my education through Walden University finishing with a Masters degree in education. Later, I went further to obtain my Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.

Life has brought many changes. My husband (and sometimes me) is now a farmer of 6 chicken houses, beef cattle, and a few goats. We welcomed our little boy to the world in 2016. I am so honored to be at Battlefield Elementary. I started my career here for the 2012-2013 school year, and I have loved every day since!
