Position at Oakcliff Elementary School

  • 5th Grade Teacher/Math&Science







I am so excited to start my 11th year of teaching! Teaching was not my first profession. Instead of listening to my mother, who always told me to be a teacher, I became a health care administrator. After many unhappy years as an administrator, I realized it was not my passion and decided to go back to school for teaching. It was the best decision of my life! And yes mom you were right!!!

A little about me…I am a transplant from Buffalo, New York. My parents and childhood friends still live there and I get to visit them every summer. GO BILLS! GO SABRES! I attended SUNY Fredonia, D’Youville College, and Mercer University. I have 4 “babies”. Coco my precious apricot poodle. And Sunny, Romeo, and Juliette my sweet love birds.

When I am not teaching I enjoy traveling, jewelry making, shopping, reading, exploring Atlanta, spending time with friends, and playing with my loveable pets.

I look forward to the 2016-17 school year!
