Mt. Carmel Elementary 2008 to current


I am so happy to be in my tenth year here at Mt. Carmel! We have a friendly staff and exceptional students. I absolutely love making beautiful art everyday with our wonderful children.

I grew up in Douglas County and have known many of our teachers for several years. I love working in my hometown and seeing so many familiar faces. I attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and decided to return home to teach. I also have my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on bilingual education.

I am married and have a daughter, Emmaline, who was born in 2011. I also have a cat, Andy and a dog, Rae.
