I started my teaching career at Lake Windward WAY back in 1995!  Since that first year, I have enjoyed teaching both Kindergarten and first grade!  I earned degrees from both Clemson University and Mercer University, but I am a true Clemson fan!  I live in Alpharetta with my family and two dogs.  My son recently graduated from high school and my daughter is a junior at Milton HS.  Lake Windward is certainly my second home and I am thrilled to be part of this Gator family!  I am lucky to work with an awesome and our KinderGators!

I Love Kids and I Love Learning!


I began my career in Broadcast Journalism & Radio. After 7 years in the field, I discovered a desire to teach children after working with youth in the community. I've taught Kindergarten through Middle school, and Special Education students. It is a great joy to teach Kindergarten and be part of the Kindergarten team, Lake Windward is truly is a special place to teach. I'm a native of Florida, but I've lived in many states. I'm glad to call Georgia home after 17 years. From oranges to peaches, "It's all sweet"!

I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I love teaching and especially enjoy Kindergartners! This is my 13th year teaching at Lake Windward. Before teaching General Education Kindergarten, I taught Special Education for 7 years here at Lake Windward (5 of those years teaching Special Needs Kindergarten). I am a native Atlantan and have lived in Johns Creek for 20 years where I raised my family. I have an adult son who is married and a daughter who just graduated this past Spring from The University of Georgia. Go Dawgs! I look forward to working with you this year to help your child succeed in school!

This is my fifth year being a part of the Lake Windward Kindergarten team. This will be my 18th year teaching elementary school. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught Kindergarten thru Fifth Grade, but I have spent most of my teaching years in Kindergarten and First Grade.  I reside in Johns Creek with my husband and two sons that go to Taylor Road Middle and Chattahoochee High School. I really LOVE being a mother and a teacher!
