What Do You Love Most about Tattnall?

I love how welcoming everyone has been to me. Sometimes it is hard to be the "new kid" . I can honestly say that I have felt right at home from the very first day. Griffey has transitioned so well and I believe it is because he feels at home here, too.


I am married to Tom and we have 4 children; Ripken, Katie, Brooks and Griffey. I graduated from Georgia College with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I also earned my Masters degree from there. I have worked in several different schools, both public and private. I believe that children are the same everywhere...they all need love and someone to invest in them. My hobbies include reading and cooking and spending time with friends and family. I married a man who loves baseball and who has taught my children to love it as well. Hence, the majority of my free time is spent at a ball field watching someone play or coach. I cannot imagine my life any other way!

Fun Fact:

My 3 boys are named after Major League baseball players. But it is my daughter, Katie, who is the power hitter in our family. (She complains that we didn't name her Babe).

Favorite Verse or Inspiration:

I have so many that it is hard to pick just one. :) "Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all". - Aristotle
