I am originally from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. My parents were both college professors at the University of Southern Mississippi. There are many educators in my family including counselors, high school teachers, librarians, and a superintendent. Education was a natural fit for me because I wanted to use my creativity and love for reading in my occupation.
My husband and I are college sweethearts. We met at the University of Alabama, and our first date was the 2000 Iron Bowl. We have a two sons named Mac and Fred, and a cat named Patches. My hobbies are Alabama football, cooking, kickboxing, reading, and running.
My first teaching experience was ninth and tenth grade at Henry County High School in McDonough, Georgia. I loved Henry County and stayed for two years. While working in Henry County, my husband finished law school at the University of Alabama and was employed at a law firm in Birmingham. I then moved to Birmingham and started at Thompson Middle School in 2005. I am currently teaching 8th grade English. My classroom teaching experience includes teaching Advanced English, Career Prep, Debate, English Second Language, Regular English, and Inclusion classes. I am currently in school to recieve my master's in education.
This is the start of my 19th year of teaching. I look forward to meeting all my students and guardians. Please refer to my Google Classroom page if you are looking for any additional information, assignments, handouts, and answer keys. Go Warriors!
