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. I love living and raising my 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 27th 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 the middle school environment and began a new journey as a High School 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 have two wonderful children, Cason and Isabella. We have a Golden Retriever named Luke and two cats named Jack and Meadow.
I love to travel, listen to audiobooks, 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!!!
