Hello! This begins my 12th year in music education. I am so excited to be at Athens Elementary!
I was the choir director at Athens High School and Middle School previously.
In 2017, I was awarded Teacher of the Year for SPARK Academy at Cowart Elementary.
I was the Choir Director for Hazel Green High School from 2009-2014.
In 2014 I moved to elementary music at Julian Newman Elementary and Cowart Elementary.
I am married to Stanley Hand, science teacher at Elkmont High School. We have two beautiful children, Elijah and Mary Elizabeth.
My passion has always been music. I began performing at age 4.
I also enjoy camping, reading, and and traveling.
