          After graduating from Muscle Shoals High School, I attended a small college in
    Mississippi called Mississippi University for Women. To this day, I treasure the
    friendships I made there, and I remember fondly the wisdom imparted to us by
    our wonderful professors. After two years at MUW, I transferred to The University
    of Alabama where I met my husband, Jayme, in the English education program.  
    I was offered a permanent position at County High after my student
    teaching placement in the fall of 2008 (Go Wildcats!). For 12 years, my husband and
    I both taught at County High--our classes were even right next to each other! However,
    in 2020, he transitioned into the ministry as a student pastor.  Our students mean the
    world to us, and we feel blessed to be a part of their lives.  
         In my spare time, my husband and I love to travel and play with our three pups (all
     rescues).  We are huge Bama fans (Roll Tide!), so Saturdays in the fall are filled with
    friends and lots of football!  Lastly, we love serving our community through our church.
