Hello! I am excited to begin the school year teaching Social Studies at Richview Middle School. This will be my fifth year at Richview and my 13th year overall. I received my Bachelors degree in Marketing and my Masters in Education from Austin Peay State University. My husband and I have two children who attend the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, shopping, and watching movies. I'm looking forward to a fantastic year.
