Education

After graduating high school from Cleburne County High School in Heflin, AL, I attended Judson College in Marion, AL and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design. I continued studying Interior Design at Auburn Univeristy. Years later, I earned my Master's degree in Education at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. I have done continueing studies at the University of West Georgia and Columbus University to add to my teacher certification areas.



Experience

I started teaching in 1990 at Rosemont Elementary in LaGrange, GA. I taught Special Education and Art there for six years. Since then, I have taught in Haralson County, Bremen City, and Carroll County schools. Over the years I have taught 5th grade, Elementary Art, Special Education, and now High School Art. I love Mt. Zion and I hope to finish my career here. I never imagined that I would work in such a beautiful school. It is a pleasure to work with the teachers, administrators, and students at Mount Zion. I have served as the Yearbook Adviser for MZHS since 2010.



Bio

I am an Alabama girl who grew up on a farm. I had loving parents and two younger brothers. As a child, I loved to be outdoors, loved swimming and water skiing, was a cheerleader, took piano lessons for nine years, and always loved creating things. I have worked as an interior designer, a mortgage loan processor, in retail sales, and as a teacher. I was lucky that life led me to teaching because in that I am able to combine my two passions--children and creating art. I have a grown son and daughter whom I adore. They are both married now, have children, and are graduates of Auburn University. My son works in Environmental Science and my daughter works in Occupational Therapy. Outside of teaching, I spend most of my time enjoying my grandchildren and I hope to someday make time to do some of my own artwork!
