    This is my 14th year teaching at Taylorville Primary. It is my 12th year teaching second grade!


    Tuscaloosa has always been my home. My husband, Mark, and I live in the Taylorville community. We have been married for 23 years. We have been blessed with three wonderful children. Brown is 21 and attends the University of Alabama where he is pursuing a degree in physical education. He is also getting married next summer! Emily Bette is 19 and a sophmore at Shelton State Community College. She is majoring in elementary education. Kerr is 17 and a senior this year at Hillcrest High School. All three of them work at TPS extended day. We also have three Boston Terriers named Millie, Mabel, and Mighty.  Mark teaches 8th Grade World History at Echols Middle School in Northport. He also serves as Worship Pastor at North River Church.
