I graduated from Jacksonville State University in 1996 with a secondary education degree in history and English. I graduated in 2001 with a masters from the University of Alabama and in 2008 with a library media add on from Jacksonville State University.
Taught English 8, 10, 11, 12 for eleven years--nine at Winterboro prior to becoming the media specialist at CMS in 2008. I have served as the media specialist for both Childersburg Middle School and Childersburg High School for 9 years.
I am married to a history teacher and have two sons, Christian, and Daniel. I LOVE Alabama football!! I enjoy reading, watching sports, and bicycling. Traveling is also something I enjoy. I want to be a positive influence on my students. My desire is for my students to be lifelong learners who love reading. One of the most important things to me as an educator is to make sure that my students are learning not only the skills they are going to need in the "real world" but also that they are learning to be good citizens in our society. It is very rewarding when I learn about my students' success stories. I became a media specialist because I have a strong love of reading, and I want my students to become lifelong readers as well.
