“I knew I wanted to be a teacher as a young child when my sister and I would play “school” in our home and I insisted on always being the teacher even though I was five years younger than her. My passion for history grew in high school thanks to my amazing teachers. Their excitement for history, geography, government and politics was so infectious that I knew I wanted to teach Social Studies. Whether I’m teaching ancient history or current political events, my hope each day and each year is that my students leave my class as a more educated member of this global society we live in. My favorite part of teaching is the students. No other job gives me the opportunity to talk and learn about my passion while engaging with young adults each and every day.

 

I chose to teach at William & Reed Academy because of the intimacy it provides.  The faculty, staff and students at W&R have given me the opportunity to rediscover how education truly can and should be! The small class sizes mean individualized learning while building relationships with my students each day.

I live in Woodstock with my husband, Lee and our two kids, Jackson and Emma. We are avid sports fanatics and especially love the Atlanta Braves and the Georgia Bulldogs!!! We enjoy playing tennis, swimming at the lake/beach, and trying out new restaurants in our free time.”
