I am the Lead Teacher in Acceleration B. I have lived in Nashville for almost two years, but am originally from Memphis. I am an only child with two incredible parents, Tommy and Anne. Being an only child can get pretty boring, but I am extremely close with my extended family. In my spare time I am a die-hard trivia player and avid watcher of all things TV. I graduated from the University of Memphis in 2009 with a B.S. in Elementary and Middle School Education. I was a nanny for a family in Memphis for nine years. Watching their children grow from kindergarteners to high school students is what prompted me to pursue a career in education. I also had many amazing teachers throughout my school years who helped me to unlock a love of learning. I want to be one of those teachers. I am very grateful for this opportunity to teach at The Gardner School! The students, staff and parents are the best.
