      A little about me; I am SO excited to be a part of the Cottondale First 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 pursue 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 have been teaching 4th and 3rd grade for the past 6 years and I’m excited to teach 1st grade for the 1st time this year.

      I am married to a wonderful man, Danny Gelwix. Together we have three little boys who light up our lives; Price 7 yr, JJ 5 yr, and Thomas 1 yr. We also have the most rambunctious English bulldog named Mr. Bojangles.
