I have loved teaching for 25 years! I taught kindergarten for the first 10 years and third grade for the past 15 years. I value the opportunity to be a part of a child's educational experience. I treasure the new families and friends I get to know each year. Thank you for sharing your children with me this 2019-2020 school year.
Some personal history: I grew up in Fairhope and graduated from Fairhope High School. However, both my parents attended Daphne Elementary School as children in the 1940's. This is a wonderful community and I am proud to be a part of it as a teacher.
Family: I have been married for 41 years, I have 3 children (and 2 daughter-in-laws, 1 son-in-law) and 5 grandchildren. When I'm not teaching, I am enjoying my wonderful family!
