I grew up in Decatur, Alabama and attended Austin High School. My mom is also a teacher and I always knew I would be one, too! I briefly attended Auburn University before transferring to the University of Montevallo, where I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees. I plan to continue my education there in the near future, and I will be starting the process of becoming a National Board Certified teacher this year!
I completed my student teaching at CVES, working with the wonderful Ashley Tilley. I then taught first grade for a year before moving up to third, where I have been ever since. This will be my fourth full year of teaching. I am passionate about teaching and education and love my job every day!
I am married to my husband, Sean. He works for a software company based in Washington, DC. We have two cats and live in Calera. Sean and I love to run, (we will be running our fourth half marathon this fall!), travel, and cook healthy food.
