I have been part of the Greeneville City Schools family since 1985.  I began as an Educational Assistant in second grade at EastView Elementary School.  When my husband became Principal there, I moved to Hal Henard and then to Highland working with first and second grade students and teachers.  In 1990, I was hired as a one/two multiage classroom teacher at Highland.  For the past 16 years I have taught a 1/2 loop where I keep the same students for 2 years.  I really love this concept!  In all, I have 4 years experience as an Educational Assistant and 24 years of professional teaching experience!


I was born in Covina, California where I lived until age 13.  My family moved to Bristol, Tennessee 1971.  I graduated from Sullivan East High School in 1976 and East Tennessee State University in 1980.  I am married to Dale Landers, the Principal at EastView Elementary School.  We have two boys, Cameron 25, who is a 3rd year Medical Student and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX.  Connor is 19 and a sophomore at East Tennessee State University.  My family and I live in Tusculum and are active members of Asbury United Methodist Church.
