I am so excited to have your child in my class this year. This is my twenty-fifth year of teaching, all right here at McGarity Elementary School! I taught in the Early Intervention Program for six years and eleven years in the fourth grade. This year will be my eighth year teaching third grade. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Kennesaw State College in 1992. I recently earned my Master's Degree from Kennesaw State University, and I will complete my Educational Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction this Spring.
My husband Chris and I have been married for thirty-two years, and we have four children. Everyone in my family has wrestled - except me! All of our children wrestle, including our daughter. She recently graduated from Missouri Valley College, where she competed on the women's wrestling team and became a college All-American. She is now coaching women's wrestling at the University of Saint Mary in Kansas, while earning her Master's Degree. Two of our sons are also wrestling in college - one at Princeton University in New Jersey and the other at Wabash College in Indiana. Our youngest attends Hillgrove High School.
