Exceptional Education


B. S. Degree in Special Education with a minor in Elementary Education

University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

In addition, I have taken numerous courses including several Behavior Management courses.


i have 28 years experience in the Hamilton County school system.

Two years experience in the Anderson County school system.

I have always taught Exceptional Education, ranging from the self contained 

classroom,  to Inclusion, and Direct Services. Teaching elementary students 

is a true learning adventure that I truly enjoy. Their minds are so eager to learn,

explore and be challenged.



I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee.

Educators have been in my family for over 100 years!

i had a grandfather who was a principal and a grandmother who was a high school 

teacher.  My father -in- law was a teacher, principal, and assistant superintendent

with Chattanooga City Schools. My husband is a retired Hamilton  County teacher

and coach.

 I have three grown children and two grandsons.

My passion is working with children to help them succeed in life. As they say, The children 

are our future.  I am looking forward to a FANTASTIC  year of working with students and

educators at East  Brainerd Elementary School.
