I am excited to have you in my class this semester! Read the information below to find out a little more about the woman on the other side of the computer! Below is also one of my favorite Beatles' songs. You can listen to it play as you learn more about me :)

I have taught several classes while working with GaVS. Here are my top favorite courses!

Since 2005...

I first started teaching in 1999, but a few years ago, I was looking for some cool things to do on my summer off and I came across a website that said that Georgia eLearning was looking for online science instructors. Intrigued, I completed an application and I've been here ever since.

My Favorites!

Anything else?

Department Chair

I also work as one of the Science Department Chairs for Georgia Virtual School. So when I am not working with my students, I am helping other teachers to continually manifest their greatness!

Master Teacher

I have worked very hard at Georgia Virtual School and the honor of Master Teacher was recently bestowed upon me as recognition of my professional development, hard work, and dedication to this school.
