    I am beginning my 18th year here at Mt. Zion Elementary. I worked 7 years as a paraprofessional in grades kindergarten and first. This is my 11th year teaching. I have taught 2nd & 3rd grades, and this will be my second year teaching gifted. I am a 1992 honor graduate of Mt. Zion High School.

   As of August 28, I will have been married to my husband, Brandon,  for 23 years. We have 2 wonderful children, Tiffany and Dylan. Tiffany is currently a nursing student at Southern Union. She lives in Auburn, Alabama with her husband Kyle. Dylan also lives in Auburn, and works as a cook at Newks and Jefferson’s restaurants. He will be attending Southern Union in January to pursue a career in culinary arts.

    Besides spending time with my family, I enjoy photography, reading, crafting, and woodworking. I am very honored and blessed to be chosen by my colleagues as the teacher of the year. Teaching is my passion, and I could not imagine having any other career!
