    3rd Grade ELA Teacher

     Hello! I am excited about being your child’s 3rd grade ELA and S.S. teacher for 2022-2023. I am partners with Mrs. Guerra, who teaches math and science. This year, I am going to focus all of my energies on helping your child reach their full potential. We are going to have a GREAT year bridging gaps and learning how to be more independent.

    This is my 17th year of teaching, and my fourth year at Highland Elementary. I am originally from Montgomery, AL "WarEagle, Baby," but I have lived in the Brandon/Madison area for the last 15 years.

    I attended Jacksonville State University and received an undergraduate degree in elementary education. I have my Masters from Jackson State University in Elementary education, and I have a specialist degree in Administration from Belhaven. I love using arts integration to help my students understand the lessons they are being taught. 

    I have a son, Lachlan, who is starting 4th grade at Madison Avenue Upper. We have two cats, Silas & Waverley, and two dogs, Krypto & Ace, that have big personalities. However, I do have to say, that my Siamese cat, Silas, is the one I snuggle and is loved by the most. I love spending my free time with my husband and son, reading a new exciting mystery, and hanging by the pool.
