Growing up, I lived in Florida and graduated from Santa Fe High School (Lakeland, Florida)
After high-school, I attended Auburn University (Auburn, Alabama) and graduated with a BS in Education.
My college degree is in Education from Auburn Univeristy! (War Eagle!)
In addition to my degree, I am a NASA STEM Educator and I have certifications from NILD.
This is my first year teaching at IW Evans. My husband and I just relocated from Ozark, Alabama. Teaching 5th Grade Science and Math is very exciting for me!
I have many years of varied teaching experiences, they include:
1981-1986 Bartow County Schools (Cartersville, Georgia) grades K-2
1986-1998 home raising my amazing children
1999-2009 private school (grades Pre K – 12)
2009-2013 Dale County Schools (Ozark, Alabama) grades 5th/6th Science
2013 – 2015 Rapoport Academy (Waco, Texas) grade 4 Science and Math
2015-2018 Dale County Schools (Ozark, Alabama) grade 8 Science, grade 5 Science
My husband and I just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. We have six grown children (5 sons and 1 daighter). Our 4 amazing Grandchildren keep us on our toes! We have one pup, Dixie, that really suns the show at our house.
When I am not busy planning an exciting Science lesson, I enjoy cooking, sewing, bird-watching and cheering on my Auburn Tigers! War Eagle!
