In case you need to hear it again, it is pronounced “miskovietz.” (Just think “Soviets” with a Miss in front.) I’m so excited to spend this school year with you and share the fun and excitement that 6th grade will bring. This is my third year at CMS, but I have been teaching for many years. My family and I moved to Collierville five years ago from Iowa where I taught as well as owned, operated, and head coached at a gymnastics academy. My husband and I have four children: our oldest is a Chemical Engineer at a plant in Colorado, one in college in Iowa, one in graduate school in New Jersey, and one who is a 9th grader at CHS. My family loves to travel and the whole family spent our summer vacation in New York City.  Reading for relaxation and coloring in my coloring books are my favorite activities and I hope to pass on the love of reading to all of you this year.
