I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Jacksonville State University and earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama.  


I am excited to say I will be teaching my 13th year at Sand Hill Elementary.  I moved here in 2006 after teaching 16 years at the same school in Gadsden, Alabama.  It was very hard to leave my school family and I prayed for God to lead me to a school that had the same "We are family" heart and soul.  In January I will have taught 30 years.  During that time, I have learned so much from students in grades 2-5.  I have bonded with families and made lifelong friends.  

At Sand Hill, I taught 4th grade for 11 years and this is my second year in 3rd grade here.  In Alabama, I taught 2nd grade - 5th grade.  Most of my experience has been in 3rd or 4th grade.  THEY ARE MY KIND OF KIDS!  

When I graduated college in December of 1988, I saw a job posting for a teacher beginning in January in a little town called Buchanan, Georgia.  I drove over on a nice Sunday afternoon and found the school, said my prayers, and called on Monday to schedule an interview.  I was hired and began teaching on January 18, 1989.  This was my daughter Jessica's first birthday!  God is so good to have allowed me the opportunity to teach, and I can't imagine doing anything else. This year Jessica will be 31 on her birthday.

Teaching has always been what I wanted to do.  It is my calling and my passion.  I am COMMITTED TO CHANGING LIVES FOR THE BETTER one child and family at a time!  #PatriotStrong




Many years ago, around my 29th birthday my youngest daughter Kelsey was born and time stood still.  By a grand miracle, everyone else around me continues to age, but I have been 29 for many, many years. :)  Teaching is the joy of my life and I believe you are as young as you think you are.  So every day, I tell myself and my students that I am 29 again, so I can keep up with their energy!

I am blessed with a wonderful blended family.  My husband Danny's children are Courtney, Jaclyn, and Avery.  My children are Jessica and Kelsey.  Jessica and her family lives in Alabama and Kelsey lives here.  I have a grandson named Gunnar.  He just turned 8 and will be in the third grade.  And yes, every time I go to see him, he gets a book for a present and we read together!  His faithful friend and partner in crime is Otis, my grandpuppy!  Otis always welcomes me with a happy face and makes sure he is in the middle of my lap whenver Gunnar and I read together!

I am a true Alabama fan, who is married to a die-hard Georgia fan!  My children are Auburn fans!  But somehow we all get along.... :) 

I am excited to begin this new school year and look forward to seeing you soon!


Roll Tide!!
