    Special Education
    I have been teaching for 15 1/2 years. I taught at Brookwood Middle School during the Spring 2005 semester as a long-term substitute after graduating in Dec. 2004. I taught 4th and 5th grades at Holt Elementary School from August 2005 through 2010. I have been teaching Special Education at Holt Elementary since August 2010.


     I have lived in Northport, AL all my life. I have known that I wanted to work with children since I was very young. My grandmother was a librarian in elementary schools for years and I always helped her. After graduating high school, I went to college at Jefferson State Community College on a softball scholarship. I began my degree in education at that time and I continued it at the University of Alabama. I graduated with a bachelors in elementary education in 2004. I got married to Brandon Rushing on November 17, 2007. I love working with children, sports, singing, and being outdoors.  After being accepted in the Project TEEACH program at the University of Alabama, I received my masters in Special Education in 2008. In October 2014, I had my first child, my son Tyce. He is full of energy and blessing to our family. He also attends Holt Elementary and is beginning Kindergarten.
