Leadership has been an exciting journey for me, which is why you will always see me smiling. My experience includes 10 years teaching mathematics at Brookwood High School and 5 years as an Assistant Principal at Davis-Emerson Middle School, both in Tuscaloosa County. I hold a Mathematics degree from Stillman College, a Master's in Instructional Leadership from the University of Phoenix and an Ed.S. in Instructional Leadership from the University of West Alabama and Doctorate of Rural Education from the University of West Alabama. This is my 7th year as Principal at Hillcrest Middle and my 22nd year in education.I am happily married to John Davis and we have two children, Zoie and Zaya. We are active in our community and enjoy spending time with our other kids - the students at HMS! Be sure to wave and speak when you see us out and about!I firmly believe in building positive relationships and teaching strong academics! The two work hand-in-hand. We want our students to be full of knowledge and to be good people. Character education is crucial in the foundation of learning for every student. This year, we are embracing a new motto as a part of the the Whole Child Initiative through the University of Alabama. I'm so excited to take on this new part of the journey!
