I am extremely excited to begin my 14th year in education as a Thompson Warrior!  Prior to my position here, I was in the classroom as an English teacher for 13 years.  I taught 8th grade English for 3 years at Prattville Junior High School, and then I moved to Birmingham where I taught 9th and 10th grade English at Hoover High School for 10 years.  

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Education as well as a Master’s degree in Education from the University of South Alabama. After teaching for several years, I decided to go back to school, and I obtained certification from UAB in Instructional Leadership.  I am currently working on my Ed.S. in Instructional Leadership as well.
