This is my 19th year with the Monroe County Schools System. I was the secretary/bookkeeper at Coker Creek Elementary for 18 years before transferring to Rural Vale this year. I received my Administrative Assistant Certificate from the Tennesseee Technology Center in Athens. I am married to Brian Kirkland. We have two sons and five grandsons that we adore. I grew up in the Rural Vale community and it is a blessing to be back home!
