I attended first through ninth grade at Skyline School and graduated from Scottsboro High School. I married my senior year and was a homemaker and mother for many years before I decided to become a teacher. I attended Northeast Community College for two years and then received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Athens University. After graduating from Athens, I received my Master's Degree in English from the University of Alabama. I am highly qualified to teach English and Language Arts in grades 6-12.
I did my student teaching at Woodville High School. I taught 12th grade English for a semester at Scottsboro High School for a teacher on maternity leave. After that, I was hired at North Jackson High School and taught 10th grade English for a semester. In the fall of 1997, I transferred to Skyline High School. For several years, I taught Alabama History and English. Since that time, I have taught English/Language Arts grades 7-12 at Skyline.
I was born and reared at Skyline. My parents are Viola Manning and the late George Manning of Skyline.
