I am excited to become a Bristow Bear! After many years of living in Bowling Green but teaching in Tennessee, it is wonderful to be teaching in my city. This is my 20th year teaching. I taught 3rd grade for 12 years and this is my 8th year being a librarian. I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I received my master's degree in elementary education from WKU in 2006 and my master's degree in library media education from WKU in 2008. Being a librarian, where I get to be involved with every student's reading adventure has been a wonderful experience.
I am married and have a son, Dalton. He keeps me busy with all his activites, mostly soccer. I enjoy traveling, reading, and watching soccer. I love UK basketball and Tennessee Titans football. My doggies, Ruby and Gonzo, are my other babies and definitely keep me busy as well. I look forward to getting to know all the students and help further develop their love of reading.
