I have a Bachelors Degree from East Tennessee State University with a major in Mathematics. In addition, I have taken additional courses at ETSU, Walters State Community College, and Cumberland University. I have attended workshops sponsored by the Tennessee State Department of Education, College Board and various other educational bodies. I have a desire to continue to learn because there is a limitless amount of information available for me to access.
I love the opportunity to teach. I feel that it is a way of service and as such it offers many rewards and requires much dedication. I am married to Johnny Gaby and we are the proud parents of two children, Henry and Rachel. Henry and his wife, Chrissy, have provided us with two wonderful grandchildren. Our granddaughter's name is Cambell and our grandson's name is Isaac. Henry is working in agriculturally related sales and Chrissy is a nurse. Our daughter, Rachel, is married to Josh Cloyd and they live in Washington County. She is currently teaching middle school math in the Johnson City system and Josh works with the water department in Johnson City. They have two children also; a son named Andrew and a daughter named Emily.
Our family has been involved with the dairy industry for four generations and has recently sold our cattle. Students will hear me mention my family and farm in class frequently.
