Hello! I am thrilled to be part of the Fourth Grade teaching team at Piedmont!

I am a native of the Ozark Mountains in Missouri, with a few years chasing the sun in Florida. With a degree in Elementary Education (Missouri State University) and a Master of Fine Arts (University of Arkansas at Monticello), I’ve been privileged to work with students from Kindergarten to College. Whether as a librarian, art teacher, or classroom teacher, I enjoy getting to know my students and their families and being a part of their educational journey.

I have a son and a daughter, a dog that snores too loudly, and a very grumpy cat. Traveling and home improvement projects are my favorite “fun” things to do, and I’m involved in all kinds of crafty projects!
