My children are Andrew who is 21, Matthew who is 17, and Philip is 14. I have 3 dogs as well- Shadow is a black retrievever. Snickers is a carin terrier, but we call him a terrierist because he loves to get into lots of trouble! He even gets Shadow into trouble! Sophie is a maltese, and she thinks she is queen of the house! Matthew is a sophomore in high school, and Philip is in the 8th gr. So , i am involved in our church middle and high school programs. Philip is a boy scout, so my husband and I are active with the scouts.

I am a graduate of the University of TN. I have my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction. I also have my EdS in education administration. I have taught for 25 yrs, although there were breaks in my teaching career as I stayed home with my children. I have taught in both public and private schools. I have also been a teacher in homeschooling co-ops- I home schooled Andrew for a few yrs. I also worked as an administrative assistant (assistant principal) in an elementary school.

I love teaching, and my classroom is always fun! I love to use real life experiences when teaching. I hope you enjoy stories, because I love to tell stories that relate to the curriculum. Some of these stories are about my experiences with my family. Through the years, we have had lots of fun visiting and learning about many topics. I love to take field trips so my students can experience and see how the curriculum fits into real life. School should not be boring, but it should be a fun learning situation.
