I was born and raised in Gadsden, Alabama by my two wonderful parents. My dad has always been an educator so I grew up roaming the halls of several schools. I even attended the same high school where my father was the principal.This was always interesting! While in high school, I had many part time jobs but my favorite of these jobs were babysitting for different families in the community. I had never worked with children with disabilities until this time and this is what influenced me to become a teacher. These children were such a joy to be around and watching them grow and learn was such a blessing to me. I decided that I would become a Special Education Teacher so that I would be able to work with children with special needs everyday.
After graduating from college I worked with Special Needs children in the Oxford School System for 3 years and have been in the Etowah County System for 9+ years. I went back to school and got my Masters in Educational Counseling and amnow working atthe Etowah County CareerTechnicalas the Guidance Counselor.For fun I enjoy doing most anything outdoors, playing with my 3 puppies and spending time with my husband anddaughter, Jade Marie!
