I have been teaching since 1988 although I was out for 5 years while supervising two group homes that assisted the mentally challenged.  I have taught at Ringgold Middle, Catoosa Crossroads Academy, and Graysville Elementary.  I grew up on a farm in Southern Indiana before coming to Chattanooga to attend Tennessee Temple Univ.  I loved the area here and never went back to Indiana but made this my home.  Being a teacher is what I have always wanted to do.  I cannot imagine doing anything else.  I love working with the children and seeing them both in and out of school.  I have no greater joy than to be out somewhere and here my name yelled and then turn around to find one of my students running to give me a hug.  There are occupations that make more money than teaching but NONE have greater rewards.
