Subjects Taught
Math, Science




I am a Chilton County High School graduate and attended The University of Montevallo to obtain my BS and MS degrees in Elementary Education.

My first teaching experience was in Bessemer, Alabama, and I taught fifth grade for three years. I then relocated to Clanton and accepted a teaching position at the old Adair School teaching science in sixth, seventh, and eighth graders.  I moved to Clanton Intermediate School when the school opened in 2000.  I have been teaching fifth grade here for 19 years.


     I am the proud parent of two sons, Hunter and Austin.  Hunter is married to Alli and is a Civil Engineer.  Austin is currently pursuing  his pilot's license.  I live in Hoover and commute to school every day.  The drive gives me time to collect my thoughts for the day.
