This is my 10th year teaching at Dandridge Elementary School. I taught 5th grade for 9 years, but I am now returning to my favorite grade level, KINDERGARTEN.  As I tell my students, you can choose to have joy and celebrate each day as a gift or decide to be miserable. I choose joy and try to encourage each child to find their joy as well because it makes life happier :). I have been married since 1994 and have three glorious children, most of the time, Sara, Luke, and Jake. It is my pleasure to serve my students, parents, school, and community. Teaching is what I love, and it truly is a blessing each and every day. I believe in the power of a positive attitude , and I sincerely feel that every child can be successful at any level as long as they work hard. I am privileged to be able to touch the life of each child who comes through my classroom because they have truly touched my life.
