Hello to all and welcome to 3rd grade! This will be my 10th year working at CES and my 4th year as a third grade homeroom teacher. 

I am a Cartersville native and proud alumni of Cartersville High School class of 2008.  I love to read, write, draw and spend time with my friends and family.  I also love hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, and spending time at the beach.  

“Education is a social process; education is growth; education is not preparation for life but is life itself.” - John Dewey

This is going to be a wonderful school year.
