After 7 years of teaching in various schools and with a plethora of responsibilities, I was ready for a change and a chance to show the hard work and dedication of my mentors. The wonderful possibility to work in Madison City School, and one of the greatest schools in the State, Madison Elementary, was an opportunity I could not resist! I am excited to work with such a respected and devoted group of teachers. As a child, I struggled with reading but always excelled at math. As a teacher, and Reading Coach, I use my own knowledge and previous struggles with reading to find ways to reach all learners. I am an avid reader now and do my best to find time in a busy schedule to just sit down and enjoy a great book from time to time.
I recently married my best friend and have enjoyed settling into our new lives with a new house and now a new job. We are thrilled at the opportunity to build relationships with the Madison community and hope to one day have children that will be part of Madison City Schools.
