I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade Reading and Social Studies this year. This will be my 9th year as an educator at Barkers Mill. I received my undergraduate degree from Hawaii Pacific University, my Masters degree in Education from Austin Peay State University. I recently completed my EdS in Education Administration at Austin Peay State University in 2015. I love teaching students skills and strategies needed to become successful academically. I feel very passionate about reading. I believe that reading is the ticket to freedom.
