Subjects Taught


I am a product of Hamblen County Schools. As a child, I attended to Union Heights, East Ridge, and graduated from East High School in 2006. I then received my Associates of Science Degree in Chemistry with a minor in pre-pharmacy in 2008. I transferred to East Tennessee State University where I graduated with my Bachelors of Science Degree in Chemistry with a minor in biology in 2010.  I furthered my education and received my Master of Arts in Teaching in 2012.  Finally, I completed my add-on endorsement in ESL K-12 in 2013. 


I have been teaching at West Elementary for six years now in the ELL classroom.  The first year I taught vocabulary K-5.  The second year I taught writing K-5. The past two years I taught mathematics.  I am currently teaching writing for all students again. 


I love teaching ELL.  I enjoy getting to know all of my students very well for several years. I have the advantage of watching them grow and grow each year.  


I have lived in Morristown all of my life. Antonio and I have a son, Ayden and a daugther, Aria.  Ayden is three years old. Aria is 4 months old. I love motherhood.  I also enjoy working out, reading, and spending time with my family and friends.
