I have been teaching for 20 years. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. I am currently the Literacy Coach at South Shades Crest Elementary. 

I have been happily married to Rev. Dr. Kip Laxson for 31 years.  He is the Senior Minister at Asbury UMC here in Birmingham, Alabama. 

Our daughter, Kaitlyn, is 27 years old and is married to Mr. Patrick McCormick. Our son, Landon, is 24 years old and is completing his MBA at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. 

I attended Trevecca Nazarene University, Nashville, TN where I graduated magnua cum laude with a B.S. in Elementary Education. 

I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham where I graduated summa cum laude with a M.A. in Elementary Education.

I am an Orton-Gillingham Associate Level dyslexia interventionist. I am currently completing my EdS as a Reading Specialist from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. 

I love my Faith, Family, Friends, and Football! I enjoy spending time with my family, church choir and activities, reading, thrift store shopping, and interior decorating.
