Subjects Taught
Physical Science, Physical Science Honors


I received my Bachelor's degree in Geology from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.  I attended Bryan College for my teacher education courses.  I finished my certification through University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. 

I have taken additional graduate classes at Tennessee Tech University, University of the South at Sewanee, Lee University, Mississippi State, Roane State Community College and Pellissippi State at Knoxville.


I grew up in Oak Ridge, TN. I have lived in several towns and cities in East Tennessee, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

I have lived in Rhea County for more than twenty years.  I have two wonderful daughters who went to Dayton City School and Rhea County High School.  Danielle graduated from Tennessee Tech with high honors with a degree in Civil Engineering.  Lindsey is in the Honors Program at East Tennessee State University. 

I enjoy outdoor activities, cooking, and reading.

I came into my teaching career later than most and have been teaching science for ten years.  I enjoy working with students.  I never have a boring day!  It is very rewarding to see the light go on when a student suddenly "gets it."
