I grew up in Athens and graduated from Clarke Central in 1988. I am a middle grades math teacher working on my MasterŐs degree in mathematics education. I am the mother of two girls – Maree Jane, 8, and Emma, 5. They take up most of my time and energy! I also teach 6th grade math at Malcom Bridge Middle School in Oconee County. This is my 5th year there. Before that, I taught for 5 years at Clarke Middle School in Athens. My husband and I started dating in high school and just celebrated our 15th anniversary.
