Mrs. Stinson's Class
I was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1965. I have two wonderful, older sisters. My family moved to Naples, Florida when I was 2 years old. I married my wonderful husband in 1985 and we have always shared a strong love for animals and helping them.
After high school I went to nursing school and eventually became a renal technician. In 1994 I made a career change to something more cheery and decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I worked as a teacher aide in an Elementary School in Naples, Florida while attending college classes in the evenings. I graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with my Elementary Education Bachelor degree in 2000 and got my first teaching position that same year as a 4th grade teacher in Naples, Florida.
In 2004 my husband and I moved from Naples, Florida to Tellico Plains, Tennessee. I was hired to fill a long term interim teaching position at TPES in their K/1 multi-aged classroom. In 2005 I got a long term teaching position at TPJHS as their 6th grade Math teacher. In 2014 I transferred to TPES and joined their awesome 4th grade team where I've been happily teaching ever since.
