Education

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

I also earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama.  



Experience

This year will be my 12th year at Sand Hill Elementary.  I have been blessed to teach 4th grade for 11 years with an amazing group of hard-working, caring, dedicated professionals. This year, I asked for a new challenge and I was able to move to 3rd grade.  I am excited about having my own students all day and working with the students and parents very closely.  It is such a blessing to move from a wonderful team to ANOTHER WONDERFUL TEAM.  Sand Hill Elementary School is full of creative, talented, loving, and nurturing teachers.  I am proud to be a part of such an amazing group of educators.

Before teaching at Sand Hill Elementary, I taught for 16 years in my hometown of Gadsden, Alabama.  During that time, I have had the honor of teaching 2nd grade for 3 years, 5th grade for one year, 4th grade for 4 years, and 3rd grade for 8 years.  Right after grading college in 19... I had the pleasure of beginning my teaching career at Buchanan Primary School for a year and a half in 3rd grade.

So if my Math is correct, I am beginning my 29th year of teaching! 



Bio

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.  Courtney is a teacher and recently got married this summer. Jaclyn is a Senior at UWG, and Avery is a Sophomore at UWG.  My children are Jessica and Kelsey.  Jessica and her family still live in Alabama.  Jessica's husband is a police officer. She manages a doctor's office, and they have a 7 year old son named Gunnar.  He is my grandson and hold's the strings to my heart!  His best friend is his dog "Otis", my grandpuppy.  Kelsey, lives in Georgia and is managing a clothing boutique.  She plans to work on her business degree.

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 the new school year and look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Roll Tide!!
