Welcome to FIFTH grade!



I am so excited to be your teacher as you journey through 5th grade!  It is going to be a year filled with growth, fun, and new challenges.  I think you are really going to reach new heights this year!


First, let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I grew up in St. Louis, MO and am the oldest of 4 children.  I met my husband, Logan at MTSU.  We have lived in Murfreesboro for 10 years now.  We have a 10 month old, Maverick (who I’m sure you will hear a lot about this year) and a golden doodle named Oscar. I love to travel, do all things DIY. 


This is my fifth year teaching and my third year teaching math at Discovery School. I love teaching math because of how creative and empowering it can be for all learners.  My greatest desire is to see you succeed this year!


Here are a few of my favorite things:


Hobbies: Traveling, DIY projects and spending time with family

Foods: Fruit, cheese and crackers

Authors: Blue Balliett and Roald Dahl

Drinks: Fruit Tea and Smoothies

Places: Target, Chipotle, Core Life, Oscars

Places I’ve traveled: Aruba, Cayman Islands, Charleston


I am looking forward to getting to know you and all of your favorite things!

With Joy,
