I am so excited about this amazing opportunity that God has given me. I began teaching at Learnwell in 2021 and am so excited to return this year. I graduated from the University Of Georgia with my degree in Early Childhood Education/Child and Family Development. After graduation, I  married my high school sweetheart, Paul, and we have been married for 18 years. We have two boys, Brayden (12) and Rylan (10), and live in Alpharetta.

I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling, playing tennis, serving in my church, and doing crafts. My boys keep me busy, and I love to take them on trips, swimming, and to sports activities.

I taught kindergarten and 1st grade in Fulton and Cobb County Schools for 13 years. Then I taught a transitional kindergarten class and became the weekday director at my church. This past year, I had the opportunity to teach at a homeschool hybrid. I really enjoyed working with the parents and students. It was such a blessing to be able to help equip our families with lessons and tools to be successful in this model.

There is no greater joy for me than working with children. I tend to learn from them just as much as they learn from me. I look forward to working together to build a foundation for the children and families here at Learnwell.
