    I was born in Northport and have lived here for most of my life. I knew at an early age, that I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. I had lots of practice, most of which included my younger brother, William. I also enjoyed keeping the nursery at church and eventually teaching my own Sunday School class.

    My dream really came true in 1993, when I graduated from the University of Alabama with my first teaching degree. I began living my dream shortly thereafter as a kindergarten teacher at West Blocton Elementary. I remained there, teaching kindergarten for eleven years and earning my Master's degree.

    I joined the faculty at Huntington Place Elementary in August of 2004 and had the opportunity to teach both kindergarten and first grade.  In 2008 I transferred with the K-2 faculty to Northport Elementary.  Here, I continue to enjoy teaching Kindergarten while working with a wonderful faculty and staff. 

    My parents, David and Gail Tunnell, also live in Northport.  My mom is a retired TCSS administrator and my dad is a retired pastor. 

    My husband, Donny, and I have been married since 1994 and have two sons, Carson, born in 1999, and Carter, born in 2006. Donny is the Chief Operating Officer of the West Alabama Chamber of Commerce.  We are active members of Five Points Baptist Church in Northport.
