About the Teacher

I have been teaching in Roane County for 27 years. This school year, 2019-2020, will be my eleventh year at Cherokee Middle School. I have been married to Keith Barding for 35 years. We have a wonderful daughter, Emily, and a great son-in-law. However, my five year old granddaughter is just too much! I enjoy spending my free time with my family. (AND a few CMS dances, ballgames, etc.) I love to try to make each day special for my family and students. I like to travel, read, shop, and...fish (a little).  :-)
