Subjects Taught


i graduated from Piedmont High School in 1996. I attended Jacksonville State University where I earned my Bachelors and Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. I also received National Board Certification in Early Childhood Education in 2012. 


I began teaching at Piedmont Elementary in 2000. I taught first grade for 5 years. I then moved to kindergarten, where I have been teaching for the last 12 years.  This year will complete my 18th year at Piedmont Elementary School.


I have always had a heart for children. As long as I can remember, I have wanted to teach. Before teaching school, I taught Sunday school classes at my church, even in high school. I love the opportunity that I now have to work with children daily. Seeing them grow and learn is so rewarding! I feel very blessed to be where I am!
