I taught fifth grade at Hillsboro Elementary for 11 1/2 years, computers for 4 years, for 2 years I served as Numeracy Coach, and I was blessed with 1 year in 4th grade Math and Science!  This year I am back in 5th grade Math and Science. I will tell you, time does fly when you are having fun!!!

To let you know a little about myself, let's go back in time.  I am originally from a small town in Ohio known as Mentor. However, when I was in third grade, my dad was laid-off and Nissan was opening, so we moved to Tennessee.  We lived in Franklin County for 6 months before we bought a farm in Beechgrove.  My family has lived there ever since. 

I graduated from Coffee County Central High in 1992.  Although I did not have any family members that had gone into education, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do.  So off to MTSU I went.  I graduated in 1996, got married in May 1997, went back to school in August 1998, and graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in July 1999. So I was a very busy lady for those 7 years.

As I said before, my parents, James and Judy Johnson, live in Beechgrove.  I have two sisters, Tammie Jernigan and Tina Maples, that live in Murfreesboro.  My husband's parents, Jackie and Emma, and his four brothers (Jason, Kendell, Wendell, and Daryl) all live in the Manchester area.

My husband, Phillip, and I live in Manchester also.  In September 2002, we had our first child, Kaylee Grace, and in April 2005, we had our second daughter Emily Faith.  In December of 2014, we also adopted two adorable puppies that keep us on our toes at home! We also have 6 nephews and 7 nieces.
