Education

Undergraduate Degree:

BS: Exercise Science, Pre-Professional from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga

*I had intended on studying physical therapy after graduation, but I changed my mind and knew that I wanted to teach, so I went on to get my master's degree in education. If you have any questions about what goes into this major, come and talk with me!

Master's Degree:

MA: Secondary Education: Biology Content from Liberty University (in Lynchburg, VA)



Experience

After graduating with my Master's degree, I started working as a math interventionist at the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy. The next year I got hired on as a science teacher, and stayed there teaching science for 3 years. I am now on my fourth year teaching. 



Bio

I am one of the physical science teachers at the high school as well as the Conservation of Public Land teacher, and come to Soddy Daisy High School after teaching 3 years at the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy. I live in Soddy Daisy, and graduated from this school, so I was very excited to be able to start teaching here in my community. I am married, I have one son, and then a daughter due December 17th. My husband is a teacher at Soddy Daisy Middle school, so some of you may know him as well. We have both lived in the Soddy Daisy area all our lives, except for taking about a year and a half to live in Raliegh, NC while my husband (Tyler) was getting his Master's Degree. 

In my spare time, I love getting outside and experiencing what the world has to offer. My family loves to travel together, so we have gone to many places across America to spend time getting outside and see all the beauty that this creation has to offer. In class, I will encourage you often to get out and do the same. Enjoying time outside and with family is happiness to me. If you have any interest in going to see some awesome views, and find a great place to get outside locally or nationally, come and ask me about it!

I love teaching because I love science, and I love getting to know my students. I love being able to interact with students and see them move on in school. It makes me excited to see the progress that is made throughout the year, and then the years after. So, I am very excited to be in the position to see students grow throughout high school and then graduate to go on and do what they desire.
