    I am originally from Athens, AL, and I dreamed of being a teacher ever since I was a little girl. I loved going to school, playing school at home and would "teach" anyone who would listen! Most of the time that was my stuffed animals and my younger brother, Matt. 

    I moved to Tuscaloosa in 2008 to attend the University of Alabama, and began pursuing my dream to be a teacher. After I graduated in 2011, I wasn't ready to leave. I loved it here so much that I decided to make Tuscaloosa my home. 
    So, I began my teaching career as a special education aide at Rock Quarry Elementary while earning my masters degree. Then, I joined the Arcadia Elementary faculty and taught 3rd grade for two years and 2nd grade for two years. Finally, in 2017, I was presented the opportunity to teach Kindergarten at Northport Elementary. I am so blessed to have become a part of this wonderful family and community! I truly enjoy teaching kindergarten, and instilling the love of learning in the minds of my young students. 
    I currently live in Northport, AL with my dog Lola. In my spare time, you will find me visiting my family, going to the beach, reading and teaching fitness classes at the University of Alabama.
