I am a native of Madison County. I graduated from Hazel Green High School in 1988. I graduated from the University of Montevallo in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a Middle School Endorsement in History. I began my teaching career at Madison Cross Roads teaching 5th grade. I moved to Sparkman Middle School when it opened and have been here since. I currently teach 6th grade science, but I have taught every subject at some point in my career.
I have been married for 25 years and we have a daughter who is a freshman at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. I enjoy reading, gardening, singing, playing the piano, and cooking. I am an active member of my church.
