I am so excited to be at West Creek Elementary! I'm from Kentucky, and new to the Clarksville area. This is my first year teaching first grade. However, I spent three years in Kentucky schools teaching second grade. I'm so pumped for the start of the school year! As a true Kentucky native, I love UK basketball. I don't yet have any children, but I do have a couple of pets that think they are children! I'm honored to be a part of the West Creek family. Let's have a fantastic school year!

This currently my 12th year of teaching. I am so excited to be your child’s teacher. I was inspired by my third-grade teacher to become an educator and life-long learner, and it has been my continual goal to give back to the education field and inspire other young lives. I truly love children and teaching. I believe that there is no greater reward than watching a child light up with enthusiasm as they comprehend a new concept. In my classroom learning and fun are inseparable. I graduated from Delaware State University with a bachelor’s degree in Primary education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. I have also taken classes toward my Doctoral Degree in Education leadership. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.I will always do what’s best for my kiddos. We are going to have a wonderful school year! Thank you for entrusting me with your child. I want to make it the best experience possible for each and every child.
