  • I have 25 years experience teaching in Alabama Public Schools.  I have been serving as Reading Coach for several years and returned to the classroom in 2015.  I love teaching third grade.


I have taught at Greenwood for 18 years.  I was a Reading Coach for several years.  This year I am teaching third grade, and I love it.

I am married to Ronnie and we have two children.  Kris, our son is married and lives in Mobile.  He has 2 sons, Logan age 4 and Lawson age 2.  Kris is Vice President of Operations and Athletics at the University of Mobile. Our daughter, Haley, teaches Special Needs Students at Gardendale High School.  She has 1 son.  His name is Nelson and we celebrated his first birthday June 23, 2015.  Being a grandmother is the best thing I've ever done.  It is truly "grand".
