Hello Hembree Springs Family! I am beyond excited to be the Media Educational and Technology Instructor for Hembree Springs! I have been at Hembree Springs for seven years, and I am happy to call it home! I started my teaching journey as a 2nd grade teacher and then became the S.T.E.M. teacher where I had the opportunity to work with grades K-5.
I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University and recently obtained my Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology from there as well.
On a personal note, I have two amazing children! One is currently a First grade Hembree Springs Hawk, and the other is a future Hawk!
I look forward to working with students, parents, and teachers in my new role in the Media Center. I will be working with classes and focusing on information literacy to help strengthen and support the curriculum. I’m looking forward to helping prepare students for the 21st century and inspiring a love and appreciation for reading. If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I grew up in a very small town located in northern Michigan. Here is a map showing my hometown of Boyne Falls.
I attended North Central Michigan College in Petoskey, Michigan. I moved to Roswell in 1998, and I love living here with my husband and three kids.
As you might have guessed, I love to read! My favorite genres are mystery and fantasy. In my free time, I also enjoy traveling, gardening, and volunteering.

Caterpillars & Butterflies
Why do I bring in caterpillars? Where do I get them?
When I was a kid, I used to LOVE to catch butterflies -- especially monarchs. I realized that I hardly ever see monarch butterflies here, and started doing some research. Monarchs are truly amazing creatures!
I learned that monarchs can only lay their eggs on milkweed. It is the only food their caterpillars will eat.
I planted some milkweed & the monarch butterflies have found it. They lay eggs in my yard in the spring & in the fall, on their migration path. I now have tons of milkweed in my yard, as well as many other plants to attract butterflies.
Here is a photo of two monarch butterflies I raised at my house.
Tadpoles & Frogs
Why do I bring in tadpoles? Where do I get them?
I made a little container water garden for fun & the treefrogs that live around my house love it! Every spring, they come and hang out by my pond and lay lots of eggs. I love to bring in the tadpoles to show everyone how cool they are.
Here is a picture of my "pond" -- it even has a waterfall!
When the tadpoles finish their metamorphosis, they leave the pond as very tiny, perfect little frogs.
Hereis a picture I took of a brand new little frog.
