Mrs. Graham


     I have been a teacher at Newport Grammar since 1996. I went to the University Of Tennessee and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. I went on to receive my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the University Of Tennessee as well. Even though I majored in History in college, my true love has always been Science. I have taught Science for the majority of my career. Science is all around us and it amazes me constantly. I also just enjoy teaching. This is the thing that I was meant to do. I am and have always been proud to be part of the Newport Grammar School family.

     My husband is Jay Graham. He is a farmer. I have two children, Will and Bella. I love being a part of all that they do and watching them grow into young adults has been the joy of my life! I have a large extended family and we are as close as a family could possibly be. I also am passionate about my dogs, UT sports, and the Boston Celtics.
