I am from Osceola, Arkansas, a small town on the Mississippi River. I graduated from Arkansas State University in 1991 with a B.S.E. degree in Elementary Education and a middle school English teaching endorsement. In 2002 I graduated from Arkansas State with a Master’s degree in Gifted and Talented Education. I am now in my 22nd year of teaching.
Our family moved to Northport, Alabama in 2007. My husband, Brad, and I have four children. Our oldest son is in his second year at the University of Alabama. Our daughter is a junior in high school, and we have one son in the 7th grade and one son in the 5th grade.
This year I am teaching at Huntington Place Elementary Monday-Wednesday and Friday of each week and at Brookwood Elementary on Thursdays.
