 I attended the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama where I received a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 1984. I am continuing my education at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.


  I began my teaching career as a kindergarten teacher 1984 at Epic Elementary in Birmingham. I taught kindergarten at Epic for 5 years. While staying at home with my children I taught four year old kindergarten at Hoover Day School for 13 years. I was the director of the day school for two years before coming back to the public schools teaching first grade in 2002. This is my eighth year here at South Shades Crest teaching kindergarten.


     I have been married for many years :) and have 3 children. I have a daughter getting married, a daughter graduating for the University of Alabama and a son beginning his college journey at Alabama. I love gardening, reading and going to the beach. Teaching kindergarten children is a passion of mine, I enjoy building those relationships. Alabama is my team... ROLL TIDE ALWAYS!!
