Hi. I am a certified teacher of English Language Arts. It is great to be a Glencoe Jacket at Glencoe Middle School. I teach eighth grade and also sponsor the SGA that is comprised of seventh and eighth students. Every year we attend great motivational conferences that promote leadership and growth among the student body. Each year I enjoy sponsoring the Scripp's Spelling Bee that offers another academic achievement outlet many students. This year I will be teaching ready for high school literacy courses through the SREB initiative. 

I have decided to continue my education and seek my EDS as a Teacher Leader at Jacksonville State University. This is a wonderful struggle for me and reminds me what it is like to be a student. 

I am committed to helping my students to focus on being kind and on learning to be resilient through life's challenges. 

Outside of school my husband Danny and I stay very active in our community.  When we are away from school we like to travel, hike and fish. I am also a writer and a soap maker.
