I was born in Ft Walton Beach Florida. I am the 8th of 9 siblings born to my parents. I grew up in Florida, and attended the University of Florida where I obtained both Bachelors and Masters degrees.
I have been teaching since before our youngest faculty members were born. I have been a department head at 3 different high schools. I have had 2 Fulbright Study Abroad Fellowships: the first in 1995 to Central America, the second in 1997 to Japan. I have received numerous teaching awards and presented a curriculum I developed at State and regional conferences. Once, I even had the Ga State legislature pass a Declaration honoring my achievements
