This is my 12th year teaching, and my 5th year in Houston County at Shirley Hills. I taught kindergarten inclusion at Northwoods Academy and middle grades at Elam Alexander, both in Macon. I then spent a year teaching pre-K ESOL in Abu Dhabi. When I returned to GA, I taught K-5 for 4 years at Crawford County Elementary School before moving to Shirley Hills Elementary. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in English at Wesleyan College. I attended Georgia College for my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am currently enrolled in the Doctoral Program in Curriculum Studies at Georgia Southern University.
