Greetings! I am excited about beginning the 2023-2024 school year at Highland Oaks Elementary. This will be my 16th year teaching and my 14th year teaching 1st grade. Growing up in Memphis/Shelby County facilitated my interest in becoming a teacher. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of Memphis.
