Degrees and Certifications:
I’m originally from Montgomery where I grew up, married Jay (also born and raised in Montgomery), and had our son. In 2004 we moved from Montgomery to Opelika where we raised our only child, Jonathan (JD). JD graduated early in 2017, and is currently working at a local boat dealership.
My husband transferred to the Mobile office of his company in March 2017. I was hired by Baldwin County in July 2017 to teach at Daphne High School. As we adjusted to the new jobs, we were still looking for a home. While we searched the area, we lived in our RV in Robertsdale until early January 2018. We found the perfect place in Daphne, and quickly got out of that RV!
We have two dogs. Finnigan and Rock are Puggles (mix between a Beagle and a Pug) who are totally spoiled and worthless. We also have three (yes three) cats. Chester is 13 and moved with us from Opelika. Recently Jay brought home two kittens who were abandoned at his workplace in Mobile. So we definitely have a full house!
Jay and I love the water, so we are often on our boat, at the beach, or the bay. JD will hang out with us if he doesn’t have a better option with his friends. We love living in Daphne!
I graduated from Jefferson Davis High School, and then proceeded to obtain my Bachelors in History at Troy Montgomery. I absolutely love history, so it was only natural for me to focus my studies on such an awesome subject! I have a minor in both Political Science and English. I continued pursuing my education at Auburn Montgomery and received my Masters in Education. I furthered my education by completing my Education Specialist Degree in Special Education at Auburn Montgomery.
I taught history for ten years at Opelika Middle School before teaching at Smiths Station Freshman Center where I taught Career Prep for three years. Not only am I entering my 16th year of teaching, but this is my third year at Daphne High School teaching Government/Economics and Psychology.
