I have been teaching for 12 years at Andrew Jackson Language Academy. During this time I have worked with 4th and 5th graders. I have participated in various committees such as ILT, MTSS, Principal Selection, Technology Committee, PPLC, etc. I am currently teaching Math, and Science in 4th grade.
I had the opportunity to implement the Chemistry Club at AJLA in 2010 as an afterschool activity. I have written and received many grants such as Oppenheimer Grant, Donors Choose, CFE Grant, Rochelle Lee / Boundless Readers and You Be The Chemist.
I am a mother, grandma and wife. I have been married to my husband Matthew for 32 years. I have two sons Matthew Jr. and Thomas. I also have a wonderful daughter-in-law, Jamie. As of July 2017, I became a grandmother. My grandson is my pride and joy. His name is Liam Matthew. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a Radiation Therapy Technologist for 23 years.
