I grew up an only child in Morristown, TN. In 1979 I graduated from Morristown East and began my college career.  Following college graduation, I married John Pinkston. John is a pastor in Jefferson City and we have one son, Alex.  Morristown is still my home. My hobbies include spending quality time with family, traveling, watching movies, playing the piano and listening to music, church work , and of course reading.  Teaching is the only career I ever considered.  My wonderful first grade teacher inspired me to pursue work as an educator.
