About Me

Hi! I was born and raised in Franklin County, Tennessee, and I recently graduated from Tennessee Technological University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I am thrilled to be a first-year teacher at Decherd Elementary!

In My Classroom...
Each and every student is loved, welcomed, and valued. I believe that, as a teacher, it is my job to make learning fun and instill a love for learning in all students! 
What We Learn

2. Extending division to two-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations

3. Developing understanding of volume.
