    Subjects Taught
    Special Education
    I have been teaching for 12 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 have been teaching at Holt Elementary School in 4th and 5th grade since August 2005. I am currently teaching Special Education for the 8th year.


     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.
