Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching since 2005. I started at Daphne in August 2017.
As a Board Member of the Alabama Scholastic Press Association, I can honestly say that helping students find their voice through journalism is one of the reasons I enjoy teaching. I have presented sessions and workshops about journalism classroom issues at both the state and national level. I am currently a Certified Journalism Educator working on my Master Journalism Educator endorsement.
