I was born and raised in Webster Groves, Missouri a suburb of St. Louis. I moved to Atlanta in 2002, and finished my bachelor's degree in History and Sociology at Georgia State University. I went back to GSU to complete my Masters in Teaching. I then spent five and a half years I have honing my teaching skills at Sequoyah Middle School. I taught 6th grade Social Studies for five of those years. At Sequoyah, I took on a variety of roles: I served as the 6th grade Social Studies Chairperson for five years, Team Leader for three years, and one year on the GA Milestones Testing Committee. This will be my fourth year teaching at Kittredge, and my third year teaching my favorite content, 6th grade Social Studies. I am married and have a 7 year old daughter, Olive, and a 4 year old son, Freddie.
