Degrees and Certifications:
Hey guys! I am a proud 4th grade teacher here at Chickasaw Elementary. This is actually the exact job I dreamed of as a little girl. I grew up in the small town of Jackson, Alabama. I have many educators in my family. This is not why I decided to teach. My 4th grade teacher was the absolute BEST. She taught me so many things and truly loved what she did. I knew I wanted to become a teacher after that special year in school.
I loved small town life in Jackson, and this is one reason I enjoy teaching in Chicksasaw. After living in Mobile the first years of teaching, I knew I wanted to be in a place more like home. I have now lived in Satsuma for 7 years. After highschool, I attended Alabama Southern Community College in Monroeville, AL. I studied and lived there for 2 years before moving to Auburn, AL to finish working towards my Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education. I graduated from Auburn University in 2008. My first teaching position was in Mobile at Denton Middle School. I taught 6th grade Language Arts and Science. I worked there for 8 years before finding my position here at CES. I so much enjoy the relationships I have made with the students, families, and faculty here.
I have a family of 4. My oldest child is 7. He is a 2nd grade student at Robert E. Lee Elementary. My daughter is 4 she is enjoying being a "little chieftain" at Chickasaw Early Learning Center.
