I signed a contract with a realtor in Tenn. which expires in June. I am not satisfied with her performance to date. I do not want to make life tough for her by calling her broker, however, I do want to break the contract. Does anyone know the ramifications for breaking said contract?...thanks

You may not be able to just break it. You did make a commitment to give her adequate time to sell the home. I say this not knowing if you have a good or bad Realtor but that's irrelevant in this discussion anyway.

First, talk to the agent and tell her you're unhappy and why. Agents don't want unhappy clients so give her a chance to fix it.

If you are still dissatisfied you can then discuss with the broker either reassigning the listing to an agent that fits your needs better or asking to withdraw the listing so you can find another company.

Luke, without knowing the details I can't tell you what the ramifications would be. Read your contract and act within the constraints of the contract. Talk with your agent and let her know why you are not satisfied with her services. If you can't resolve things at this level then go to her managing broker and explain the situation. If she has not met her obligations as outlined in the contract, or there is a serious personality conflict, they may just cancel the contract or may offer to switch agents. If there is a disagreement as to whether or not she is doing her job they may ask you to reimburse the agent for out of pocket expenses on your listing.

We're not sure if it's a listing or buyer agency contract as I read the OP. If it's Buyer Agency, the feelings may be mutual - not everybody clicks and the agent may want to end the relationship as well. We need more info, Luke.
