Welcome to the CCCHS Art Room!  The 2017-18 school year is underway and marks my 15th year at CCCHS!  I'm a Cub from Cheatham County and graduated with Honors from Cheatham County Central High.  I am happy to be home and able to give back to the community that raised me!  I attended Austin Peay State University and graduated with a BFA & a minor in Education (K-12).  I did my student teaching on the graduate level at Stewart County High & New Providence Middle School.  I have 18 years of combined experience in teaching from Montgomery, Sumner, and Cheatham County. I've taught all grade levels but high school is where is my heart is and where I have the most experience. I look forward to another exciting year in Art I-IV with new ideas and creative possibilities to explore!  My job is not only to teach but to encourage, inspire, challenge and bring out the BEST in all of my students! Also, donations of all kinds are very much appreciated & always welcome to help support our curriculum!  Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or concerns at and let's make it a GREAT year together!
