I am beginning my 17th year of teaching . This is my third year in 6th grade and it is my second year at GMS. I taught one year at Camp Ernst Middle and 14 years at Stephens Elementary. 13 of those years were spent teaching math to fifth graders. My last year at Stephens, I was the RtI math instructor for Kindergarten through 5th. I am married and have one son named Joshua James. He is 14 and is in the 9th grade at Ryle High School. I enjoy camping on weekends and throughout the summer.
