• This is my sixth year at Faucett Vestavia Elementary, and I feel like it is home! I am seeing my former FVES students going to intermediate and middle school, and I love watching them grow up. I taught for 15 years at the RISE Program on the University of Alabama campus and ten years at Crestmont Elementary. This is my thirty-first year to teach preschool special education. I have taught four-year-olds my entire career! I received both my Bachelor and Master degrees in Special Education at the University of Alabama and have National Board Certification in Special Education.

     I was born and raised in Decatur, Alabama and Tuscaloosa is the only other place that I have lived. I like to travel, read, and do crafts. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and just having fun! I love being able to impact young children by helping them get a great start and learn to love learning!
