Welcome! I am currently in my 5th year as an educator. I taught 5th grade in Phenix City for 3 years, and have taught 6th grade at South Smiths Station Elementary the past 2 years.
I graduated from Smiths Station in 2003 and call this community my home. It feels great to be teaching in the same school that I attended in 6th grade. I graduated from Columbus State University with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education in 2017. I graduated with honors from CSU and received multiple scholarships and awards for being a leader in the education department. Most notable I received the Most Outstanding Elementary Teacher Candidate Award when I graduated. I am currently working towards a Masters in Curriculum and Education. I have also recieved the Rookie Teacher of the Year Award during my first year teaching at PCES, and the Teacher of the Year Award during my 3rd year teaching at PCES.
I have 3 children who also attend Smiths Station Schools. My oldest daughter is in 6th grade, my son is in 3rd grade, and my youngest daughter will be attending Kindergarten in a couple of years.
I am entering my second year as the Head Coach for Women's Junior High and JV Soccer. I am also in my second year as an Assistant Coach for the Junior High Football team.
I love having the opportunity to build relationships with, mentor, and grow students in our community. I care for each student as if they were my own. I am fulfilling the calling on my life.
