This will be my first year at Lakeview and I will be teaching 5th grade reading and language arts. I recently moved to Mt. Juliet from Pittsburgh, PA where I taught 2nd grade. Before that I lived in Knoxville, TN and taught 5th grade for three years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education in 2009 from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and am currently working on my Master’s in K-8 Math and Science Specialist. I’ve been married to my husband Adam for seven years and he is a data scientist. We have two daughters, Ava who is 5-years-old and Ella who is 1. We also have a labradoodle named Bailey. I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA so I am a big Steelers fan! Our family also loves UT football and enjoys visiting East Tennessee often. I am thrilled to be a part of the Lakeview team and am looking forward to a great school year!
