• All About me


    I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher and to be teaching at J. Larry Newton with such wonderful teachers, involved parents, and fabulous students!  Every grade that I have ever taught has been absolutely wonderful because of the children! I truly believe that I was meant to be a teacher!   I am constantly learning new things from the staff that I work with, the parents, and of course my students! I'm looking forward to a wonderful year in second grade and starting my fifteenth year of teaching! I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Leadership and Administration.  A few years after that I earned my Educational Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, became certified in Special Education and also in ESOL. I am married with two wonderful children, Isabela and Gunnar. :) Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, running, and watching Alabama football! If you need anything please feel free to ask.
