The Alcoa school system has always been an important part of my life. Having a parent in the system allowed me to quite literally be born and raised a Tornado. I am a proud Alcoa graduate and was able to work through college with the Alcoa City Schools Technology Department. After graduating from The University of Tennessee Knoxville, I was hired full time in the Alcoa City Schools Educator Support Center to work in finance. A few years later, I moved back to the Technology department and now manage our student information system and state reporting.
