"Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be."

Originally from Brewton, Alabama, I received my Bachelors of Elementary Education and Masters of Elementary Education from Jacksonville State University.  Go Gamecocks!  I can truly say that teaching is a calling that laid hold of my soul and wouldn't let go.  I began my college education majoring in forensic anthropology.  After several years, it became clear to me that I was running from the place I wanted to be the most...the classroom.  So, despite the fear of being in a profession that is overwhelmingly underfunded and under-appreciated I switched majors and have never been happier.
I began my teaching career in Leeds, Alabama at Leeds Elementary School where I taught 4th grade for three years.  I really loved my time in Leeds, but it was time to move back to the Eastern Shore. 
I am married to Matthew Davis, a local business owner. I am also the mommy of Emma Elizabeth, who is in 4th grade at FIS; and sassy Evie, who is almost 4.
This is my 8th year teaching 3rd grade at Fairhope Elementary.   I can honestly say that I have never lived anywhere like Fairhope!  Matthew, Emma, Evie, and I love this area and all of the people that we have met here.
