I graduated from Shelbyville Central High School in 2004. I then continued my education at Middle Tennessee State University where I majored in Elementary Education. I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in May of 2008.
During my time at MTSU, I worked in several schools in Rutherford County and Murfreesboro City Schools. This includes Campus School, Christiana Elementary, Bradley Academy, and Lascassas. My practicum was completed in 2nd and 3rd grades at Campus School, and I completed my student teaching in 3rd grade at Bradley Academy and 5th grade at Lascassas.
