     I have been teaching in Grainger County for over twenty years. I started at WashburnSchool; while there, I taught grades three thru sixth grade and coached the elementary basketball team.  I then transferred to Rutledge Middle School where I teach eighth grade Literature and Language Arts - my favorite subjects!


     I have lived in Grainger County my entire life.  I was raised in Bean Station and graduated from Rutledge High School in 1986. After graduating from ETSU, I started teaching at Washburn Elementary School where I met Robbie Sykes. We married and have two children - Hunter and Lexie. I enjoy watching my children play sports, going to movies and out to eat with my friends, and attending church.   I am a Christian and am a member of Blue Springs Baptist Church.
