Appling Middle School


Hello - I have been teaching here at Applilng for 13 years!  I have experience working with students with Autism, Down Syndrome, CP, disruptive behaviors, and language delays. We are fortunate in Bartlett City Schools to have the 1:1 initiative which provides EACH of my students an iPad to use to reinforce academic topics, various school work, and for communication. 
I graduated from UT Knoxville in 1994 and in 2005, I received my MAT in Special Education from the University of Memphis. I have been married to my husband Dan for 24 years and we have 2 daughters. Hayden, who works in Washington DC, and my youngest daughter Mayson is in Nursing school at UTHSC.  
We ALL enjoy our awesome, funny dog, Hank!

I try to check email at least 2x per day, but if you need to reach me right away it is best to call the school phone number.
I am excited to work with your child this school year! We do lots of fun activities and we work really hard to make learning fun for each student. Please feel free to contact me with questions or just to tell me about your child.
