This is my fifth year at Garrison Mill Elementary and my eighth year as a media specialist. Prior to becoming a media specialist I taught for four years in elementary schools in Augusta, GA. My husband, Sean and I have been married for 22 years and live here in Marietta with our two children Adam and Emily who just turned 15 years old. They’re twins and I stayed home with them until they were seven before returning to work. I also kept myself busy with tutoring and substituting when I could. Adam and Emily are now 9th graders at Pope High School. Time sure does fly, which is why I chose the quote in the image above; to help me keep things in perspective.  In my spare time I like to read, write, do genealogy research and play with new technologies. But, my absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my family and friends. If you’d like to keep up with my other adventures, feel free to visit:

Hello all.  This is my seventeenth year at Garrison Mill as a paraprofessional . After spending eight years in various classrooms, in 2010 I moved to the media center. Before coming to GM I worked as a pre-K teacher at a private pre-school.  I really enjoy being in the media center as it allows me to be around two of my favorite things, books and kids. My husband David and I live close by here in Marietta. We have been married for twenty seven years and have two children, twenty six year old daughter Risha and twenty-three year old son Avery.  My hobbies include collecting signed and rare books, cooking, drawing and painting and being active.  I am looking forward to another amazing and exciting school year here at Garrison Mill!
