Hello. I am a Foley native and a 1993- Top-Ten Graduate of Foley High School where I participated in the following organizations: SGA Co-Chairman, NHS, AFS, Interact, French Club, Yearbook, and band (Trombone Section Leader).
I am married to Joe Shoots, Jr., and we have three amazing children: one daughter, Zaria; two sons, Zion & Zanterius Shoots.

I have been honored to be Foley Middle School's Teacher-of-the Year twice: 2004-2005 & 2011-2012!

Every day I teach, I have the opportunity to not only enact one of my dreams, but I also have a chance to help mold the future through my students!
