How many years have you been in education? I have been teaching for five years.

Tell us about your family. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Garrett, for a little over 7 years. We have a beautiful little (almost) 2-year-old, Carlee. I have the most amazing parents and an older brother who is married with a son. I am truly blessed to have the love and support of my family.

What is your favorite part of the year and why? I love the winter time. I love everything about it! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. I love Christmas time, the Christmas movies on Hallmark Channel, snow, and basketball (Go, Duke!). Oh, my birthday is in the winter too! Haha!

Finish this statement: I teach because...I want kids to love math as much as I do. I feel if I can get them to enjoy me as a person, then they might in return begin to like math. I truly care for these kids and want them to be successful.
