• I am proud and honored to join Karns Middle School as Principal, effective beginning in the 2016-2017 academic year. I have 25 years of experience as a teacher, RTI Coordinator, assistant principal and principal. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in English from Middle Tennessee State University, a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Tennessee Technological University, and an Education Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University. In my “spare” time, I am working to complete my doctoral dissertation from Lincoln Memorial University.

    My goal at KMS is to continue the successful traditions in academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities for which KMS is known throughout the district. The success KMS has achieved has not been accidental, but rather a combination of hard work, strategic decisions, and a dedication from ALL to do what is in the best interest of students.
