     Education

        I attended and graduated from Hillcrest High School right here in Tuscaloosa.  From there, I attended Shelton State Community College before transferring to The University of Alabama to pursue a degree in elementary education.  I graduated magna cum laude in December of 2015.  
     
     Experience

        I have been working and volunteering at Taylorville Primary School since the spring of 2009.  I started off working at the Extended Day program and volunteering with the P.E. department.  In 2011, I became a regular substitute at TPS.  In the summer of 2012, I also started to work at TPS's summer day camp.  In the spring semester of 2016, I was hired to fill in for a kindergarten teacher here while she was on maternity leave.  In April of 2016, I was hired as a first grade teacher at TPS for the following school year.  I taught first grade for two years before moving up to second grade. Second grade is my FAVORITE grade and I am excited to be teaching it!  I love Taylorville Primary School.  It is like home to me and I can't imagine teaching anywhere else!
