About Me: 

I grew up in Jasper and attended Jasper High School (formerly Walker High School). After high school, I graduated from UAB with a Bachelors Degree in English and a Masters Degree in Secondary Education - Language Arts. This is my fourth year teaching, and I can assure you I learn something knew every day. I strive to create an environment that is challenging, but also engaging. I believe students learn best when they are presented with information in a variety of strategies that target the multiple learning styles of individual students. I believe writing and critical thinking are critical for success in the future, and as such, I try to challenge students to grow as writers and thinkers.
