About Me

This will be my TENTH year teaching at Fairhope Middle School. TEN! What a journey it has been! I LOVE the content we get to cover through this course and love that I get to teach in the same middle school I went to years ago. Yes, I am a pirate through and through. I have two children (Hays, 6 and Mollie Katen, 4) and two dogs and have been married for 10 years as well. I am looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year! Go Pirates!
