Welcome to my class! I am very excited about this year and the things we will accomplish in our time together. I am a Hart County native. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Kentucky and my graduate work at Western Kentucky University. I am a Bread Loaf School of English Fellow (Middlebury College, VT), a KY Writing Project Fellow, a National Board Certified Teacher, and a Google Certified Educator.
I am married to Matt Baucum, the Director of Bands here at EHMS. We have two children, Huston and Lily. Huston and Lily attend Creekside Elementary. In our spare time Mr. Baucum and I both enjoy road cycling and taking camping trips with our kids. I love coffee, a good book, and quiet evenings on my back porch.
