  • I went to the Universtiy of Montevallo where I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Education.
  • I then completed my Masters of Education at Alabama A & M.


 My first year of teaching was with the Madison County School system as a Title 1 teacher. I was then offered a job at Madison Elementary (still considered the Madison County system) as a 3rd Grade teacher. I have remained at Madison Elementary since, teaching 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades. I taught all subjects until 5th grade. I now teach Science and Social Studies to all three 5th grade classes.


     I have lived in the Huntsville area for most of my life. My husband and I have lived in Meridianville for the past 26 years. Tim and I have been married for 28 years and have a 15 year old son, Louis. He is a Freshman at Hazel Green High School. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, gardening, and going to the beach or the mountains!
