Welcome to 7th grade at Harriman Middle School! I am so excited to have you in my class for the 2021-2022 school year.  I love coming to work everyday to watch my students learn and grow. This will be my 21st year as a classroom educator and my 18th year here at HMS  I encourage parents to be active in their child's education and want you to contact me anytime you have a question or concern. I use a wonderful tool called Remind that allows you to receive texts, push notifications, and/or emails(depending on your preference). I use this to send out information about your child, as well as announcements and deadlines that apply to an entire class or all of 7th grade. Please sign up on my links page or look for instructions to come home the first full week of school. 

I use CANVAS to post all assignments, announcements, and assessments. Students access this through the clever portal. You can also download the canvas app on your personal device to view and monitor your child's assignments, assessments, and grades. 


 I live here in Roane County with my husband and two wonderful  2 children, Colton 12 and Daniella 9. I spend my time outside of school watching my son play football and baseball  and my daughter in basketball, soccer, and softball. . I also enjoy Reading, being outdoors, and watching Alabama Football. 





ONLINE ACCESS 2020-2021 School Year
