 Personal Information

I am the mother of two wonderful young adults.  My son, Nathan, is 29 years old and lives in Cleveland.  He is a graduate of Virginia College and works as a computer drafter/engineer at Vulcan Industry in Moody.  Nathan is a very talented guitar player & even played in a band for awhile.  My daughter, Katie, an Auburn University graduate is 27 years old and lives in Athens, Georgia where she works in the athletic department at the University of Georgia. She is married to a wonderful young man named Matthew Nielson, who is also an Auburn University graduate & a really wonderful young man.  I recently moved into a little subdivision in Rosa where I have enjoyed working in my yard and making new flower beds. I am a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church in Rosa.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, and watching old movies. My favorite thing to do in my spare time is visit antique stores, thrift stores, estate sales, and yard sales. I love finding old treasures/antiques for my home and have decorated it with these treasures found while out having fun, along with some special pieces inherited from my grandparents and great aunts. My favorite piece is an old Hoosier Cabinet that I painted red.

Even though 3rd Grade is one of the most challenging grades, I thoroughly enjoy teaching this age group.  The children are like little sponges soaking up the knowledge and new skills.  I look forward to meeting and working with the new students that I am blessed with each year.
