EDUCATION - B.S. Elementary Education from Athens State
Teaching is my vocation. I knew from a very early age that this was what I was meant to do. I have been teaching my friends, kids, family, etc. for longer than they would like to remember. However, I didn’t immediately go to college out of high school. I didn’t go to college until I was 25. I was already married and had two kids when I finally decided it was time to go to college. I have personal experience that supports my belief that education is the way to change your life. I try to share this with my students through my passion and commitment in the classroom.
When I’m not teaching, my time is spent with my family. My husband and I have three beautiful daughters. Our youngest was born in 2016. Our two older girls are active in sports, so most of our weekends are spent cheering them on at whatever sport they are competing in at the moment. If I’m not watching them compete, I enjoy reading or watching documentaries on Netflix. I am a sucker for a good underdog sports story or the biography of someone who overcame hardship to be successful.
