Hi Families and Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to be with your students this year! This is my 2nd year at Oakland Elementary, I previously taught in WA state, and I was a paraeducator for 3 years prior to earning B.A. in Elementary Education from Colorado Christian University in May 2021. My husband is retired from the military after serving 21 years, which is what brought us back to Clarksville. We have 3 children, Nevaeh,15, Xayden, 12, and Sawyer, 6. When I am not in the classroom, I am spending time with my family, watching movies, hanging at the ball field (watching our son play), and traveling. I am looking forward to a great year!
