I have loved my 27 years in education! I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades and found my "home" 14 years ago as a Gifted Educational Specialist teaching 4th grade gifted students.
Creativity through technology with a splash of ART!
To be a teacher each an every day is quite an honor! I have been blessed with a wonderful career that I love. I am humbled to have been named Teacher of the Year in 1998, 2001, and 2013 for my school and Educator of the Year for my school system in 2013. I was named in the Top 5 in Alabama for the Teacher Hall of Fame twice and consider that such an honor. I love my job!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, a Masters degree in Elementary Education, and a Masters Degree in Gifted Education all from The University of Alabama...Roll Tide!
