About The Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS Ed. in Elementary/Early Childhood Education. While attending UA, I marched with the University of Alabama Million Dollar Band's Colorguard. I later returned to UA for an MS Ed. in Elementary/Early Childhood Education. I also hold a MS Ed. degree from Jacksonville State University in School Library Media and Technology. In July 2018, I completed coursework for an additional certification in educational leadership.
My family moved to St. Clair County (Pell City) a month before I started Kindergarten. I attended and graduated from Pell City Schools and my parents still live in Pell City. Prior to marching at the University of Alabama, I marched in Pell City's Band of Gold. I graduated high school in 1989.
Currently, I live in Moody with my dogs, Daisy and Boo. I enjoy traveling, sporting events, and spending time with friends and family.
I began my career in 1995 as a Title I Math and Reading aide at Ashville Middle School. In 1996, I was hired as a 6th grade general and advanced reading teacher. In 1999, I started teaching at Springville Middle School as a 5th grade Math and English/Language Arts Teacher. During my time at Springville Middle School, I have served as a 5th grade Math, English/Language Arts, and History teacher, a Technology Specialist, a Librarian/Media Specialist, and a 6th grade History Teacher. I chose to return to the classroom after my time as a Librarian/Media Specialist because I missed the connection to students that is built in the classroom setting.
