Dear Stark Elementary Staff, Families and Stakeholders,
I am honored and excited to share a little about myself. I was born in Austin, Texas. When I was eight years old, my father retired from the Air Force, and we moved to Franklin, Tennessee to be with family. In Tennessee, my father began a second career as a farmer. My parents are now retired and live in McDonough, Georgia.
Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. When I was little, I would line up my stuffed animals and teach for hours. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Louisiana State University and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Mercer University. I have 23 years of experience in the field of education. Eighteen of those years was as a teacher, and I have more than five years of administrative experience. Throughout my years in education, I have enjoyed the opportunity to use my skills as a teacher and leader to impact the lives of so many children.
I have been blessed with an amazing husband for 19 years, two wonderful stepdaughters, a great son (in-law) PERFECT GRANDSON AND BEAUTIFUL GRANDDAUGHTER! I have many hobbies and things I enjoy doing. During the summer, you can find us soaking up the rays on Jackson Lake. I enjoy duck hunting and bow hunting white tail. Most of all I treasure time with family/friends and of course going SHOPPING!
In July of 2016, my husband and I bought a house in Jackson. We immediately felt we had come home! I was blessed to be chosen as the leader of Stark Elementary. I have the best Stark Family! We are better together! We work everyday with students, staff, parents, and community stakeholders to provide learning and life experiences that maximize the individual potential of all students so they are prepared for a productive future. We are #STARKSTRONG!
