Experience

My teaching career began with the Shelby County School System where I taught fourth grade for 7 years at Thompson Elementary. In addition, I spent 7 years as a School Counselor at Oak Mountain Intermediate/Middle and Helena Elementary/Intermediate Schools. I was also fortunate to spend several years at home with my children. This is my seventh year to teach 5th  grade at  Brock's Gap Intermediate School. I feel it is a privilege and honor to be teaching in my hometown of Hoover!  Go BUCS! 



Bio

    When I was in 5th grade my family and  I moved to Hoover, Alabama. I attended Bluff Park Elementary, Simmons Middle School, and W.A. Berry High School (renamed Hoover High School).  I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Troy University and a Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of Montevallo.  This school year begins my 21st year as a teacher/counselor and is my seventh year to teach 5th grade at Brock's Gap Intermediate.

   Aside from teaching, I enjoy spending every minute I can with my family.  My husband and I have been married for 19 years.  We live in Hoover with our 3 children (a 12th grader, a 7th grader, and a 5th grader).  I can often be found transporting my children to their various after school activities.  As a family we are involved in our local church and community activities.
