I am entering my 19th year of teaching in Houston County. I taught 3rd-5th grades at Shirley Hills Elementary school for 11 years. This will be my 8th year at Perdue Elementary where I have taught 3rd and 4th grades and am excited to get back to 5th grade. I have a bachelor's degree from Georgia College and State University. I was a curriculum writer for many years for literacy for 3rd and 4th grades and also a model classroom for teachers to come observe me teach. This year I am proud to represent Perdue as the Teacher of the Year! In my free time, I love to read and spend time with my family.
