About the Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
BA in English University of Montevallo, 2003 MA in Education (secondary grades), University of Montevallo, 2004
This is my 14th year teaching. I attended the University of Montevallo as an undergraduate and as a graduate student. While enduring my student -teaching practicum (working without pay is always fun), I found that God was calling me to be with middle school kids. After graduating with my Masters of Arts in Education in 2004, I felt at home here at Odenville Middle School. I love middle schoolers (as much as one can;) and I will serve the children and families of Odenville wholeheartedly.
I love English Language Arts, and hope to inspire my students to love it, too. I have been married for 15 years. Our daughter, Lynlee, is in the fourth grade, and we have a son, William, who is 3 years old. Enjoying reading and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix are what I love to do when I get a chance. Harry Potter and The Hunger Games series are my favorite books. My favorite team sport is football- ROLL TIDE! Scrapbooking is another activity that I enjoy when I can find the time. If I could live anywhere in the world, it would be in the Appalachian Mountains in a cabin with my family and my books.
