I hail from East Tennessee, being the proud daughter of the late Robert and Edna Knaff of Oliver Springs, Tennessee. I was lovingly raised with seven tremendous siblings: six sisters and one brother. I was raised in a very talented musical family and music has always been a passion of mine. Most everyone in my family either sings or plays an instrument, and we also have a family gospel choir.
Growing up, I was the teacher in the family. Therefore, when it came time for me to go to college, choosing my vocation was relatively easy. I often tell my students that the only reason that I got in trouble in school was for reading books. I loved to read and I read all of the time. My teachers constantly got onto me for having a novel in or under my textbook. Can you imagine that I was sent to the office for this offense? Fortunately, I still did well in school.
I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and began my teaching career at Riverdale High School as an English Teacher. After a few years, I moved home to upper East Tennessee to work in the Kingsport City Schools. I worked as a teacher and assistant principal at Dobyns-Bennett High School. I spent several wonderful years there. During this time, I completed my Doctorate of Education at East Tennessee State University.
Deciding to join my sister in Atlanta, I moved to Georgia and became an elementary administrator in Thomaston-Upson County. After several years, I met my husband, Matthew Korvayan of Monrovia, Liberia and we moved to Henry County. I was fortunate to become an administrator in Henry County and am blessed to be able to continue my love of education here at Hampton High School.
I am the doting mother of Iesha, Robert, and Joshua. I am also the loving grandmother of Olivia and Mason, whom they call “Gigi.” As I continue on my path here at Hampton High School, my prayer is that I will have a lasting impact on each and every student that I touch. I want my students to know that I believe in them and their ability to become whomever they desire to be. I operate under the auspices of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s favorite song, “If I Can Help Somebody As I Pass Along….Then My Living Shall Not Be In Vain.”
