Hello! Welcome to 1st Grade at Oakland Elementary! I am excited to begin my second year teaching within the Clarksville Montgomery County School System. I hold a bachelor's degree from Auburn University and a master's degree in Education from Lipscomb University. My family moved to Tennessee three years ago and we love it here! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, and exercising. Teaching is a passion that I enjoy and I can't wait to ignite the passion for lifelong learning within my students!

Thank you!

Oakland uses a positive behavior matrix that promotes student awareness in expected behaviors.  This matrix can be seen in every room, throughout the building, is described in our school handbook located in the front of each student's provided OWL planner, and builds off our character trait acronym (WISDOM) banners handing from our foyer ceiling.  Each desired trait is broken down to identify school related desired behaviors to create student understanding and awareness of expectations.  These indicators are also linked to Class Dojo, which is used not only by teachers but throughout the entire building by special area teachers, special service providers, support staff, and administrators to provide consistency for our students and with parent communication.  The six overarching categories/character traits that student friendly indicators are broken down for on the visual matrix that students are taught about and expected to strive for are:

  • Work Ethic
  • Integrity
  • Self-discipline
  • Determination
  • Optimism
  • Motivation
