Hello, I am so excited to be spending the year with your child. We are going to have a wonderful time in fifth grade. I would like to let you know a little about myself. I am an Austin Peay graduate. I was born and raised in California and moved Tennessee via the military. I have been with my husband for seventeen years and we are the proud parents of Nathaniel who is 10 years old, Benjamin who is 3 years old, and Matthew will be 2 years old in September. Nathan will be starting fifth grade this year! I enjoy reading and love spending time with my boys. We try to travel whenever possible to visit our families in California, Nevada, Illinois, and New Jersey. I have been teaching here at Barkers Mill since we opened in 2006. This will be my tenth year teaching and I am very excited to share this time with your child!

Welcome to fifth grade! I am looking forward to a great year together. This is my seventeenth year teaching with ten years teaching outside Tennessee. I have taught in California, North Carolina and most recently 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 just retired from the Army so we are looking forward to a box free life in the future. We loved Clarksville and 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 excited to have a new bunch of students this year, and I can't wait to get to know everyone. Just a few tidbits about myself. This is my fourteenth year of teaching-five of those years were spent in Texas, as my husband was in the US Army. I have one son and one daughter. I look forward to spending the year with each of you. We have LOTS to accomplish, and our wonderful journey begins now!

Welcome to 5th Grade! I am truly looking forward to a wonderful year, and I can't wait to get started. This is my first 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 dog for walks and spending time on the lake. Let's have a great year!
