Welcome to Whitworth!

About your teacher:
 
I'm excited to welcome incoming students to the 2023-2024 school year. This is my 19th year teaching middle school. I graduated with honors from Middle Tennessee State University in 2004. I taught 8th grade ELA for 13 years and this is my sixth year teaching 6th grade ELA. This year will be different from any other as your child transitions into middle school and I am here to support you and your child every step of the way.
