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 18 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 21st year to teach precious children.  I taught 9 years, took off  9 years, and am starting my 12th year here in the Madison Schools.  I really do believe that God called me to teach. 

I have 3 boys... Chase (22) graduated in May from the University of Alabama and is now working as an Associate Engineer outside of Mobile.  Drew (20) is a Sophomore at Hinds Community College and is playing soccer for them.  My youngest son, Rob (16) is going into the 11th grade at Germantown High School and will be playing soccer for them. He is also a Flag boy at the Football games. :-)

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.  I have 2.  One is for my homeroom only and the other is for my math classes.  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!
