This year marks my first year in the role as Curriclum Leader for Perdido Elementary and Middle. Originally from a small rural town in Central Alabama, I feel like I have come home. Before coming to Peridido, I spent over two decades in the ELA classroom in Clarke, Mobile, and Baldwin Counties. My family consists of my two beautiful children, Sam and Claire. Sam is a member of the United States Air Force currently serving in Kuwait. Claire is a sophomore in high school. We have a very lively home complete with two dogs and five cats. I am so excited about the new school year and all the possibilities therein.
