About Me
I'm a communicator, facilitator, and educator by vocation; by temperament, I’m a singer, storyteller, and analogy artist. (You can share my ongoing journey to teacherdom on my blog, "Learning, Thinking, and Teaching," at

My decision to return to the classroom as an elementary school teacher was a surprise – to me, most of all. After a test semester as a CDC resource assistant, conducting individual and group RTI work in reading, I’m stoked about the prospect of entering the elementary classroom. This fall I’ll be interning in a grade-4 classroom, and I can’t wait to get started.

Over the years I’ve been a technical writer, taught nontechnical subjects at a technical school, operated a school-based family resource center, managed data for a nonprofit, helped run a small construction business, and – while getting my B.A. – carried mail on a very rural route, which is a great gig for a would-be poet.

These days I’m a working musician; among other endeavors, I play double bass with The LoneTones, a Knoxville Americana band that has just released its third album. I have a daughter in high school, a husband who teaches fifth grade, and a rat terrier whose enthusiasm for life is an inspiration.
