I graduated from the University of Mobile with Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.
I have taught for 34 years. I taught Kindergarten for ten years in the Mobile County Public School System at Saraland Elementary. I am beginning my 25th year here at NMCS in the First Grade.
Welcome to the First Grade! I am very excited about the opportunity to teach your child. I believe every child is unique and truly a gift from God. It is my desire to teach your child in a way that will make him/her feel good about coming to school. I want them to learn new things that will help them grow spiritually as well as academically. I want every child to have the best educational experience possible. I want the first grade to be a place where learning is fun. In order for this to happen, I feel that good behavior/discipline is a vital part in the learning process. Therefore, it is important that parents and teachers work together.
I have been married to a wonderful man, Lyle, for 29 years. God has blessed us with three great children -Tiffany, Aimee and Cody; and two sons-in-law - Josh and John. We have also been blessed with three beautiful granddaughters - Aubree, Joleena, & Aubrey and three grandsons - Bentley, Destin & Lincoln. Children and grandchildren are truly a gift from God. I enjoy spending time with my family, crocheting, reading and saltwater fishing. We attend Redemption Church and LOVE working in the nursery ministry when I'm not taking care of my mom.
