I graduated from Troy University with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in Special Education. This will be my 19th year teaching and my first year at Bay Minette Middle School. I am originally from Alabama, lived in Minnesota for 4 years, Johns Creek, Georgia for 8 years, and just moved back home here to south Alabama this summer! I have been married to Chad for 24 years. Our son, Ben, is a junior at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our daughter, Emma, will begin college at Troy University this fall. I love teaching middle school students and will be teaching 7th grade language arts this year. I love to read, hang out with my friends and family, and play with my dog, Hank.
