I earned my B.S. in Mathematics Education from Cumberland College in 1997. I began teaching at Powell County High School in 1997 before moving to Tennessee later that year. After spending four years teaching mathematics at Unicoi County High School, I taught for one year at West Greene High School. I joined Greeneville City Schools in August 2002. For four years I taught 8th grade math at Greeneville Middle School. During this time, I attended East Tennessee State University and earned my M. Ed. in Educational Leadership. I was hired as the assistant principal at Greeneville Middle School in July of 2006. I was the assistant principal there for four years before accepting my current position as Chief Student Services Officer in July 2010.
