I absolutely love my job. I have been teaching well... let's just say a long time. I have three children-Sloan, Olivia, and Luke. Sloan is married to Blair Sittason and lives in Birmingham. She is a History teacher at Liberty Park Middle School. Olivia is attending the University of Alabama. She is going to be an elementary teacher, just like her mom. Luke is in the 12th grade. He plays football and basketball. Bob, my husband, is the head football coach at Hartselle High School-The 2011 Class 5-A State Champs! GO TIGERS!!!
I received my undergraduate and a graduate degree from the University of North Alabama. In 2000, I was recognized in Washington DC as a recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). In 2004, I became a National Board Certified Teacher!!!
My career started in Kindergarten. After 3 years, I moved to a Multi-age classroom of 1st and 2nd graders. I taught Multi-age for 10 years. I looped for a couple of years and then ended up in 2nd grade-the grade I love!!!
