I am so PROUD to be a Jet!!! My family moved to Madison in 1974 and I grew up right here in this wonderful city! I graduated from Bob Jones High School in 1987. My husband and I love living and raising our children here in Madison. And, I have loved watching Madison grow...I remember when County Line Rd. was a two-lane gravel road! Madison has come a long way from the little cotton farming town it once was when I moved here as a child and I absolutely love it!
This is my 25th year in Education and I LOVE teaching and learning! I began my career as a Second Grade teacher at Hazel Green Elementary in 1995 and then moved to Fifth Grade the very next year and taught Math and Language Arts for three years. A new school was opened in the Hazel Green Cluster and I was given the opportunity to transfer to Meridianville Middle School where I taught Sixth Grade Math and Language Arts for two years. While teaching Sixth Grade I began the Library Science program at the University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa) and graduated with my Master's degree in 2002. ROLL TIDE!!! In 2001, while getting my Masters degree, I became the Library Media Specialist at Meridianville Middle School. In 2014 I decided to make a big change and move school systems and I became the Library Media Specialist at Discovery Middle School. In 2017 I decided to leave middle school and I became the Library Media Specialist here at JCHS. Every day at JC is exciting and I absolutely love working, partnering and collaborating with all of the students, teachers, faculty, and parents! It's ALWAYS a Great Day to be a Jet!!!
I am happily married to my husband, Jim, and we have two wonderful children, Cason and Isabella. We have two Golden Retrievers, Luke and Leia....Yep, it's a Star Wars thing! :-) And, three cats named Jack, Meadow, and Lucy.
I love to travel with my family, listen to audio books, running, raising money to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, photography, trying new Pinterest crafts and recipes and ALL things Alabama Football! ROLL TIDE!!!
