This is my thirteenth year teaching and have been in Wilson County Schools since 2008. Prior to that, I lived and taught in Florda. Most of my experinece has been teaching at the elementary level and teaching upper level college courses. Most recently, I was Wilson County Schools Teacher of the Year in 2015-2016 which allowed me the opportunity to travel around Wilson and see teaching and learning at it's finest.

I am excited to have made the transition to Fike!
