Welcome! I am thrilled to be serving as Norman Smith's Academic Coach. I began teaching here at Smith in 2005. I taught fourth grade for 8 years and third grade for 1 1/2 years. I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Austin Peay State University and my Masters degree in Reading from Trevecca Nazarene University. I look forward to working with the fabulous teachers here at Smith to ensure all students reach their fullest potential.
