I believe that teachers are a key part of our society. The most important role they play is empowering students to feel capable of doing hard things, failing, and learning from those failures. ” 

Tracy’s Story

Teaching Discipline


Why Biology

I have always been fascinated with the intricacy of the living world. I studied biology in my undergraduate career and fell even more in love with the subject. I love watching students have the same fascinations and wonders that I once had.

Professional Experience

During college, Tracy led a Literacy through Photography program at her local middle school. After graduation, she worked in biology and physical science classrooms while earning her master’s degree. 

Tracy will begin her second year of teaching at Fayetteville High School during the 2022–2023 school year. 


Tracy loves anything to do with the ocean and has her SCUBA license. She also recently grew her own sourdough starter and bakes often. Tracy enjoys running, volleyball, and spikeball and gets involved with as many local sports as possible.
