Interim 9th grade English Teacher at Hixson High School



After completing my undergraduate degree at West Virginia University, my husband's profession relocated us to Chattanooga.  I began substitute teaching in Hamilton County, and just fell in love the with the district and the profession.  I answered the calling by earning by master's degree in education.  I have been working for the county in one form or another since 2008, but my husband and I have also had 3 beautiful children in those years, so some time away from the classroom, as well as some part time positions have been a part of that history.  I love reading, writing, going to the beach, listening to music, being a hands on mom, a wife, and I am thrilled to be teaching writing at Hixson Middle for the 3rd year.
