I am a graduate of Goodwater High School.  After high school, I attended Alexander City Junior College, currently known as CACC.  I transferred to Auburn University at Montgomery and earned a BS in Early Chilhood and Elementary Education in 1993.  A few years later, I returned to AUM and earned a MS in Elementery Education in 1997.  Once again, I wanted to better myself and learn more so that I could be a more effective teacher.  I enrolled at Alabama State University and earned a AA/Ed.S in Elementary Education in 2008.


I began my teaching career at West Coosa Elementary School in Weogufka, AL in 1993.  I taught a self-contained 3rd grade class for 9 years.  In 2002, I began teaching at Stephens Elementary School.  When I first started at Stephens, I continued to teach a self-contained 3rd grade class.  Soon after, I began to teach math, science, and social studies in a departmentalized setting.  I continued to teach in that position until 2017.  At the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, I began teaching 3rd and 4th grade math intervention.  I taught in that position for 2 years.  For the 2019-2020 school year, I will be teaching in a self-contained 3rd grade class.  Although my passion is teaching math, I will educate my students in all subject areas to the best of my ability.


I am a native of Goodwater, AL, in which I attended elementary and high school.  I currently reside in Alexander City.  My husband, Willie and I have two daughters, Quianna and Faith.  We also have an adorable granddaughter, Kynsley who is the apple of our eye.  Being a very active 4 year old, she keeps us on our toes.  We wouldn't have it any other way.  I enjoy spending time and vacatoning with my family, attending church, and shopping.

I thoroughly enjoy and have a passion for teaching.  I thank God for blessing me to be in a profession that can make such a difference in the lives of children.  As a result of my dedication to my students and the teaching profession, I was awarded Teacher of the Year at Stephens Elementary and the Alexander City School System for the 2010-2011 school year.  That was such an honor and a blessing.  I am thankful for the teachers that instilled in me a love for learning and being such positive role models.  Because of them, I decided that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in elementary school.  I thought about another profession when I was in high school, but I am grateful that God led me down this path!
