About the Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

I love school! I went all the way through elementary and high school in a small, private school in Bessemer, Alabama. I have a B.S. in Sociology from UAB, an M.S.Ed in Elementary Education and an M.S.Ed in Reading, both from JSU.

I am so excited to start my 21st year in education this year as a 3rd grade teacher. I have two grown sons, Mason and Jackson. I also have four precious pups (Mitzi Jane, Fritz, Willow & Lila) and 3 darling cats named Allie, Etta James & LoLo. When I am not teaching, I love to read, try new restaurants, spend time with my family and friends, and listen to music. 


I am starting my 20th year at Ragland HIgh School! Before that, I taught at Duran South and helped found the St. Clair County Literacy Council where we tutored adult non-readers.
