I graduated from Skyline High School in 1996. After finishing high school, I attended Northeast Community College in Rainsville,AL. While there, I earned an academic scholarship to Athens State University. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from Athens State University in 2000. I received my Master's Degree at the Univerisity of ALabama in Gadsden in 2006.
After finishing college, I worked for the Northeast Alabama Center for Educational Excellence under a program called Educational Talent Search. During the two years I worked there, I traveled from school to school tutoring and providing academic counseling to grades 6-8.
In 2002 I was hired as a fifth grade teacher at Skyline Elementary School. I have taught in the classroom for fifteen years. Teaching is more than just a profession to me. I believe teaching is what I was meant to do.
I am a lifelong resident of Jackson County. I lived at Skyline for 22 years and attended Skyline High School where I participated in a variety of clubs and sports. I attended Northeast Community College for my general studies and graduated from Athens State University and shortly after, began teaching. I received my Master's Degree in 2006 from The University of Alabama. Teaching where my roots are is one of the greatest joys I have. I teach in the same classroom where i was once sitting as a child. My mother teaches at Skyline as well which is an added privilege that very few are afforded.
I am an outgoing, adventurous person who loves bright, colorful things. Pink and purple are my favorite colors. I love adventure such as white water rafting, thrilling rides, and anything in the sun. I will try just about anything once. I just want to be able to say that I did it. When there is extra time, I enjoy scrapbooking. I love traveling and shopping. I have seen most of the United States but would love to see the world.
I have one brother who graduated from Athens State University with a degree in Psychology and is living in Valdosta, Georgia. He is studying firefighting and paramedics and is an EMT at the hospital there. He is married to Rachel Jones, and she has a Master's degree in Epidemiology. They have a son and a daughter, and I am their absolute favorite aunt. : ) I have a sister who graduated with a Doctorate in pharmacy from Auburn University and is a pharmacist in Madison. She is married to James Arnold and two sons. I have another sister who is a banker in Atlanta, Georgia and has two sons. I love children. I had a son on September 4, 2013 whom I adore. He just turned 4. I am a huge Alabama football fan. ROLL TIDE ROLL!
On September 4, 2015, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I underwent surgery and a year of chemotherapy. This experience was so hard, but I endured and conquered it. I am a much better person for it.
