     Welcome to Sixth Grade Language Arts!

    I am so excited about teaching your child this year at Madison Middle School. I look forward to the adventures we will embark on through the novels we will be reading this year.  It is our goal to grow as learners and become great readers and writers in the process!

    Here is a little info about me:

    I  spent  twenty-five years teaching in the elementary world at Madison Avenue.  I have a degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in reading for K-12.  I have taught kindergarten, first, second and third grades.  This is my fifth year at Madison Middle. Madison has been our home for twenty-nine years, and my children are products of Madison County Schools!   My husband and I have three children; Reed, Zach and Lauren.  They are honor graduates of Germantown High School where they were very active in baseball, football, soccer, cheer and various organizations.   Our oldest son is an MBA graduate of MSU.  He and his wife live in Collierville, TN. He works for International Paper in Memphis, TN and his wife is a nurse at LeBonheur's Children's Hospital.  Our middle son is an engineering graduate of Mississippi State University an is currently working on his MBA.  He lives in Memphis and works for Federal Express. He is getting married in August, and we will add our second daughter-in-law to our family.  His soon-to-be wife is in her last year of Occupational Therapy School.  Our daughter is a recent graduate of Mississippi State with a degree in elementary education. She begins her teaching career as a second grade teacher at Jackson Prep Lower School.  We are very proud of them and all they have accomplished. We are adapting to our empty-nest lifestyle.

    I look forward to getting to know your precious child and helping them become the BEST they can be!
