• Hello!


    I am begginning my 4th year teaching in Paulding County. Prior to Herschel Jones Middle School, I taught 3 years at North Paulding High School I taught Biology, Physical Science, and Zoology at the high school level. I am very excited to teach 8th grade Physical Science at one of the most iconic schools in the district. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a Bachelors of Science specilizing in Exercise Physiology. After graduation, I attended The University of West Georgia and recieved my Masters in the Art of Teaching Broad Feild Science. I have a passion for labs, asking questions, figuring out why things around us work the way they do, and science in general. I cannot wait to share those passions with my students.


    I was born in raised in this county, and I love the community. I have loved all of the relationships built thought the schools I attended in the county, teaching at the high school level, and coaching mulitple sports. I promise to build strong relationships with my students, have lots of grace, and teach why science is important for everyday life.
