    A little about me; I am SO excited to be a part of the Cottondale Fourth Grade Team. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah and I miss seeing the snow in the winter! When I graduated from high school, I moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and began my career as a chef. I spent the next twelve years of my life cooking, skiing, and traveling all over our amazing country and world! However, teaching has always been a passion of mine so I decided to go back to school. I attended the University of Alabama to persue a career in education. I proved that it is never too late to learn and I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Elementary Education (ROLL TIDE)!

    I am married to a wonderful man, Danny Gelwix. Together we have a two year old little boy named Price, who is outrageously silly. Additionally, this summer we added to our family a sweet baby boy named JJ, who makes us smile every day! We also have a wrinkly English bulldog named Gracie Mae that makes our family complete.

    I enjoy teaching, learning new things, and truly aspire to treat each DAY and STUDENT with respect, kindness, and care!
