I grew up in Gwinnett County and have worked for Gwinnett County Public Schools since 1995. I began my career as a Kindergarten teacher at Bethesda Elementary and my first classroom was directly across the hall from the classroom I was in as a First Grade student! I taught Third Grade for seven years and then decided to become a Media Specialist. I opened Chesney Elementary as a Media Specialist in 2004 and came to Ivy Creek in 2007. Ivy Creek feels like home to me and I hope to teach here for many years to come.
I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Georgia, Master's degrees from the University of Georgia and the University of West Georgia, and a Specialist degree from the University of West Georgia. I was especially honored to be Teacher of the Year at Ivy Creek in 2008.
I have the unique privilege of working with all of the students, staff, and families at Ivy Creek. It is a joy for me to share my love of reading with each of you. I honestly believe I have the best job in the whole school!
