My professional career began as an educator in 2001 after I graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Special Education. I worked as a Special Education teacher in Florida until my family made the move to North Georgia in 2006. It was at this time that I began working with the students and families in the North Hall area as a teacher at North Hall Middle School. I served in various ways there, and my 16 year tenure included time spent as a Special Education lead teacher, Math teacher, STEM co-coordinator, wrestling coach, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director.
I grew up in the North Hall community and am actually an alumni student of Wauka Mountain. I love Wauka Mountain and am so excited to give back to the community that means so much to me. I am a graduate of North Hall High School and the University of Georgia. My husband, Josh, and I have two boys, Sam and Jake. Prior to coming to Wauka Mountain, I taught at Myers Elementary, Riverbend Elementary, and even Wauka for a short time before becoming an Instructional Coach at several other Hall County Schools. Most recently, I have served as the Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher at Mt. Vernon Exploratory. I look forward to working alongside the Wauka Mountain Multiple Intelligences Academy staff and families to support our students!
