Subjects Taught
Grades K-5


In 1984, I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Political Science and Psychology.  After working for several years, I returned to school at the University of Tennessee and earned my Masters in Education.  I have completed additional coursework at Middle Tennessee State University and University of Tennessee at Martin.


This is my 29th year teaching.  I began my career at Jasper Middle School in Marion County.  When my family moved to Franklin County, I taught at South Junior High School, Cowan Elementary and Franklin County Special Services.  I returned to Cowan Elementary in January 2015.


I began teaching in Franklin County in 1995 after seven years as teacher at Jasper Middle School.  My husband Paul and I have three grown children:  Zach, Allie and Elizabeth.   I earned my B.A. at UTK, my M.Ed. at UTC in 1990 and have completed additional coursework at MTSU and UTM.  I am proud to call Cowan my home and so happy to be part of Cowan Elementary....TOGETHER WE CAN!
