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.

Welcome to 5th Grade. I can't wait to see what this year has to bring. This is my first year teaching at BMES; I moved from Indiana to Clarksville to further my teaching career. I graduated from Vincennes university, but I am a Florida Gators fan. I spend my spare time with my dog and cheering for my Florida team. I love teaching and can't wait to see what this year will bring!

Welcome to fifth grade! I am looking forward to a great year together. This is my eighteenth year teaching with ten years teaching outside Tennessee. I have taught in California, North Carolina and in upstate New York. I have two sons who married two beautiful women, and they all live here in Clarskville. I also have a Golden Retriever named Bailey. My husband has retired from the Army so we decided this was where we would build our happily ever after. I love teaching and am blessed to be a part of your child’s life.

Welcome to 5th Grade! I am truly looking forward to a wonderful year, and I can't wait to get started. This is my second year teaching at BMES; I moved to Clarksville from Michigan to further my teaching career. I graduated from Michigan State University and love to cheer for the Spartans. In my spare time I enjoy taking my dogs for walks and spending time on the lake. Let's have a great year!
