All About Me...

Education
I graduated with my degree in Early Childhood and Elementary regular and special education from Samford University in 2005. After teaching for a year, I went back to school to get my Master's in ESL (English as a Second Language) from UAB. I graduated with my Master's in 2008, the same year I came to Pelham.

Experience
After teaching middle school for two years and special education for one year, I came to Pelham as an ESL teacher in 2008. I taught kindergarten ESL for seven years and then transitioned into the kindergarten classroom in 2015. I made the move to 2nd grade in 2017.


Bio
Teaching is in my blood. Both of my parents were educators and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I count it a blessing to be able to work with children on a daily basis, both at home as a foster mom and at Pelham Oaks as a teacher.
