Librarian/Media Specialist


I grew up in Soddy Daisy and have lived here most of my life.  For 12 years I worked as a dental hygienist in Houston. TX,      Atlanta, GA,  and the Chattanooga area. I started teaching in 1990.  I have been married to my husband, Stanton, for 37 years and we have one grown daughter, Sarah.  She and her husband live in Greenville, SC, with our two precious grandchildren, Delaney and Walker.

I have enjoyed teaching in my community and hopefully giving something back.  This is a wonderful place to live and I would like to see all of our children learn as much as possible and have the opportunities to make a great life for themselves and their families.
