I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from JSU in December 1980. I taught for one year in Gadsden, and then, I came back home to teach in 1982. I have been teaching at Piedmont Elementary School since then. I am currently in my thirty-sixth year of teaching first grade.


I have been married to Terry Conaway for thirty-nine years. We have two children, Carly and Jacob. Carly teaches second grade at Piedmont Elementary, and Jacob works at Microsoft in Seattle, Washington. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling to see Jacob, going to the beach, and spending time with my family.
