Welcome to my page

A little about me... I was born and raised in Alabama (ROLL TIDE!!!!)  I went to The University of Montevallo, where I received my bachelor's and Master's degree.  We moved here 17 years ago.

I am from a family of 5.  I have 2 older brothers and sisters.  We try to see each other as much as possible.  We are very close.

This is my 20th year to teach precious children.  I taught 9 years, took off  9 years, and am starting my 11th year here in the Madison Schools.  I really do believe that God called me to teach. 

I have 3 boys... Chase (21) will be a Senior at The University of Alabama, Drew (19) is a freshman at Hinds and will be playing soccer for them, and Rob (15) is going into the 10th grade at Germantown High School and will be playing soccer and tennis for them. 

I am so proud God called me to the teaching field.  I take the challenge with a humble heart.  I can't wait to not only teach your child, but to see what he/she will teach me!

Please look at the Remind section and sign up to get reminders from me.  It is easy to do.  Mrs. Holland and Mrs. Gardner has one also.

Let me know if you need me for anything.  I am only a phone call or email away!

Looking forward to a great year!
