Bio

 

I attended public school in Elmore County from 3rd to 12th grade. I graduated from Wetumpka High School in 2000. I believe that Elmore County Schools are awesome in preparing students for an ever changing world. After graduating high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force as a reservist. 

 

I served honorably for eight years, and received Airman of the Quarter at Maxwell Airforce Base in 2006. During my enlistment, I was able to see Spain, Italy, and U.A.E.(a small county neighboring Saudi Arabia.) I spent nine months in field conditions while in U.A.E. Being able to experience those conditions made it clear to me that we, as Americans, are truly blessed and cannot take for granted our freedom and those who fought for it. 

 

I graduated from Alabama State University, where I was a member of the SAEA(Students of Alabama Education Association) and the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). 

 

I teach 4th grade here at Airport Road Intermediate School. This is my 10th year teaching 4th grade. In life, I strive to be a light of inspiration to every child.

 

Teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth for myself as well as the students. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society, it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of and sensitive to their individual needs. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.


 

I have a ten year old daughter, Ariel. She is the joy of my life and a constant reminder for me to tap into my inner kid. My husband's name is Prentice. He also has a military background and recently came back from a one year deployment in Iraq. Our family believes in integrity first, service before self, and striving for excellence. 
I can't wait to meet you and learn a bit about you!
