I am beginning my 20th year of teaching . This is my sixth year in 6th grade and it is my fifth year at GMS. I taught one year at Camp Ernst Middle and fourteen years at Stephens Elementary. Thirteen 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. JJ is 17 and is in the 12th grade at Ryle High School. My husband built an inground pool and we have had fun this summer enjoying the pool and the wonderful hot weather. My family enjoys camping we have pulled our camper to an island called Ocracoke (part of the OBX (Outerbanks) in NC) and Myrtle Beach, SC.
