This is my 10th year teaching, but my first year at Northside Middle School. I received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Ed. from The University of Alabama, where I became certified to teach k-6 all subjects and k-12 reading. I attended the University of West Alabama and obtained a master's degree in Library Media. I then attended The University of Texas to become college board approved in AP Computer Science. I am currently working towards an Ed.S. in Teacher Leader. I say this to say... I believe in being a life-long learner. I want to enstill that in my students, so that they will become critical thinkers and masters of the knowledge they gain. I believe if students learn the process of learning, they will be able to solve challenges they will face in the future.
I have two children (Morgan and Willow). I enjoy travelling, painting, and doing things outside. For most of my life, I have lived in Northport. I recently moved back to the Northport, and am very excited about working in the Northside community!
