About Me


I started teaching 17 years ago after graduating from  the University of Montevallo with a degree in Early Childhood and then later acquired my Master's Degree at the University of Alabama. I am also a National Board certified teacher in Early Childhood! I have taught Kindergarten and Third Grade, but currently I teach First Grade at Appalachian Elementary.I am originally from Ashville, AL where I graduated High School way back in 1991.

I am married to a great guy, Shawn. We live in Oneonta.

I have three great kids.  
Emma is 13, Jack is 7, and Maggie is 5.  
They keep me really busy.

 When I am not teaching, I am usually spending time
with my family.But if I could do anything for fun,

it would be to go shopping or read (or watch)
British Mysteries!  My favorite
authors include, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout,
and James Lee Burke.
