I was born in Florida, and I spent most of my childhood in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University, and am currently in my thirty-third year of teaching. For the past twenty-two years, I have been honored to have taught both music and third grade at St. Veronica School. Each day I feel blessed to be working in such a caring, dedicated community. In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends, read, bike, swim, play cards, and bake. Music has always been a passion in my life. It is a joy to watch my students grow every day. I hope to inspire students to develop and share their God given gifts, and to instill a love and quest for learning, life, and God that will remain with them throughout their lives.
