I have been teaching for 18 years.  During those years, I have been an Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) aide, taught 1st grade, creative writing (k-6), Reading Recovery, 2nd grade, after school Academy, and currently I am teaching 3rd grade.


Growing up, I played ALL sports: volleyball, basketball, softball, and I also ran track.  My passion has always been softball, though.  I was able to attend Gadsden State Community College on a softball scholarship which propelled my academic success during my years attending Jacksonville State University.  I am the proud mother to a fabulous daughter, Hannah Kate, who now enjoys and appreciates my enthusiasm in sports.
