Where do you currently teach?
North Lee Elementary, Cleveland
How long have you been teaching?
Why do you choose to be a member of TMEA?
The relationships and friendships I’ve made with other TN educators has been invaluable to my growth not only as a teacher, but also as a person. I love how we’re able to collaborate on ideas all for the betterment of our amazing students!
What do you love about teaching?
Seeing my students faces light up when they finally grasp a concept, and watching them help their peers do the same fills my heart with such joy. Knowing that I am shaping the future by encouraging young minds is the best feeling in the world!
If you could choose another job for one day, what would it be?
I can’t decide between the conductor of the President’s Own United States Marine Band, or singer with the Glenn Miller orchestra (both still music, I know!)
Tell us one thing about you that people would be surprised to know or something you are passionate about besides teaching.
I was a top 10 finalist in the Miss Tennessee pageant in college!

We are always moving to music! Whether that’s creating our own special dances, incorporating the newest trend, or finding the form of a piece of music in our bodies. We rarely sit still!
