• I am so pleased to begin my 9th year as assistant principal at Echols Middle School.  We are fortunate to have great students, staff, and parents here to support our school.  I am from Tuscaloosa, and graduated from Central High School.  I went on to complete three education degrees from the University of Alabama.  I have been married for 19 years to my husband Ray.  He is an industrial engineer.  I have two precious high school children.  Ben is 16 years old and enjoys science, math, and track and field.  Sarah is 14 years old and enjoys painting, reading, and softball.  In my free time, I love to read, attend church activities, and watch my kids participate in athletics. I am a big fan of the Crimson Tide!
