I have been teaching in the Franklin County school system since fall of 2005. I have two daughters that received their educations at Red Bay schools.  They now have grown up and are continuing their education. I am married to Donald Thorn of Red Bay and he is a great husband and my greatest friend. He helps support and encourages me in doing things for my students.

I really enjoy sharing my love for art  with my students and people of all ages. I feel my students are very fortuate to have art at Tharptown . We are the only school in the county that offers it.

Since Tharptown is a fairly new High School, we didn't have any Wildcat images on the campus so I was asked to paint some. I painted the Wildcat in the gym and  the T in the lobby of the gym. I also painted the wildcat in the office area. I hope my students will be able to do any future artwork in the school.
