I have had the pleasure of being a faculty member of Burke County Middle School since 2008. I have taught Study Skills, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Mathematics, Reading and Math/Reading Support. I reside in Hephzibah, Ga with my husband and 6 year old twin boys, Ian and Emory. I enjoy reading, cooking, shopping and traveling.
