I get excited every school year and I am committed to making each one the best one, yet. I want every child to feel comfortable in my classroom and I want to do what I can to help each child reach their full potential.
I began teaching in 2005 at Shelby County High School. The next year I began teaching at Chelsea Middle School and stayed there until 2011 when I moved to Thompson Sixth Grade Center. After teaching a variety of grades, sixth grade is my favorite to teach.
The love of learning has followed me in my teaching career. I returned to school to receive my Gifted Education certification in 2009 and my Instructional Leadership certification in 2016. I recently became a Google certified educator.
I am married with two sons, 8th grade and 4th grade, and two labs. We also call Alabaster home.
I love spending time outdoors and going for a good run or hike. I also love listening to music and reading books.
