About Me


Becoming a teacher was always my goal....I knew even as a young child.  I have been teaching for 26 years, and still love what I do!  My husband, John, and I have two daughters, Rachael and Emily.  We also have 2 dogs named Weasley and Louie.

I was born in Clarksville, Indiana, right across the bridge from Louisville, but moved to Ashland for my eighth grade year.  It was the first year Verity Middle School was open.  After graduating from Paul G. Blazer High School, I obtained my degree at Marshall University....go Herd!  Finally, I earned my Master's and Rank I from Morehead State.

My hobbies include reading and spending time with my family.  I love murder mysteries, but also enjoy reading children's literature so I can discuss books with my students. 

It is a privilege to work with the wonderful students of Oakview Elementary!
