About the Teacher


B.S.- University of Tennessee Chattanooga

M.A.- Tennessee Tech University


I have been teaching for 28 years. The last 25 have been in the Roane County School System. I have taught second, fourth, and sixth grade. Since starting at CMS ten years ago, Language Arts has been my primary subject area.


I am a lifelong resident of Kingston. I have been married for 34 years to my husband, Conley. We have two sons, Ryan and Brady. Both my boys have completed graduate school so my husband and I have begun a new phase in our life. In my free time I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, and camping. I am excited to be sharing this year with you and your child. Education is truly a partnership between home and school. I look forward to working with you to make this a successful and rewarding year for your child.
