I grew up in a family of teachers, and this instilled in me a love for education and young children. I earned a B.A. in English from the University of North Georgia and Early Childhood Education certification from Augusta University. My work experience as a teacher includes a public, private and charter school, as well as homeschooling. After raising three children, I am excited to serve my local community sharing my love of learning. Tutoring students in reading is my favorite part of being a teaching assistant. When I’m not at home in Stanley, you might find me with my husband walking on my parent’s farm or eating ethnic food in a big city.
