I have been teaching ay Ithica Elementary School since January 2005. I have taught in 5th grade my entire time at Ithica except for one year in which I moved to 4th grade. I am happily back in 5th grade Science and Social Studies this year! I am also the proud sponsor for Ithica Elementary's Junior Beta Club. I have two children, Anna, age 5 and Tyson, age 10, and have been happily married to my husband for 12 years. I enjoy running and any kind of exercise and spending lots of time with my children at the soccer field with Georgia Storm Academy Team and the Carrollton Flexette Competitive Gymnastics team.
