I am a 2001 graduate of Lee High School in Huntsville, Alabama.  I received both my Bachelor's of Science and Master's of Education degrees, in Biology Education, from Alabama A&M University in 2005 and 2008.  I received my Educational Specialist's degree, in Administration and Supervision, from Middle Tennessee State University in 2013. Currently, I am working on my doctoral degree for Educational Leadership at Samford University. 


I will begin my 12th year of teaching this fall. I have taught both 7th and 8th grade science. This year, I will be teaching 7th grade life science and Medical Detectives (Project Lead The Way). In addition to being the seventh grade level chairperson, I serve on various instructional committees for Liberty, Madison City Schools, and the Alabama State Department of Education. I coached the Liberty competition dance team from 2009-2016 before stepping down to take on the role of assistant athletic director and coordinator of spirit teams. I have been awarded Liberty Middle School's Teacher of the Year (2015-2016), Madison City's Secondary Teacher of the Year (2016-2017), the Alabama District VIII Secondary Teacher of the Year (2017-2018), and was inducted into the Jacksonville Teacher Hall Of Fame (2017).


I was born and raised into a family of educators in Huntsville, AL. I went to college in pursuit of a degree in the biomedical field, but changed my major during my second year. I love the career path that I have chosen because I am constantly learning and evolving. My students take me on a new adventure each day. As the years progress, I hope to continue learning new and innovative ways to educate my students. 

In addition to teaching, I love spending time with my family and my two dogs.
