I am originally from Section and graduated from Section High School.

After that, I completed my studies for my Master's degree in Elementary Education through the University of Alabama - Roll Tide! I began teaching in the Jackson County School System and taught there for many years before I decided to take time off to be with my children during their preschool years and to teach for Athens State University as an adjunct. Once my youngest started school, I began working in the Scottsboro City School System. I am beginning my 21st year in elementary education. My husband and I have two children who are SCS students.
