I am married to Tim Troutman who is an insurance agent with Erie at The Troutman Agency, downtown Elizabethton. We live in Elizabethton with our daughter Rachel Peters who is an upcoming sophomore at East Tennessee University studying nursing. We also have a son, Zach Peters, who lives and works in Johnson City. We have two dogs, Duke and Darby. We attend church at Valley Forge.
I love arts, crafts, photography, vintage anything, and chocolate! My favorite television show is The Fixer Upper!
I love my job at East Side Elementary where the students are THE GREATEST! I couldn't imagine coming to work in any other field. Teaching is so rewarding and my little 2nd graders get me through life's toughest times with their genuine love, innocence, and kindness. If we could all be like 2nd graders what a wonderful world this would be!
I received a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, certified grades K-8 and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education both from East Tennessee State University. Go BUCS!
