Bio

Prattville has been my home since 1998.  My husband and I have been married for twenty-seven years and we have five children -  four daughters and one son. Four of our children are Prattville High School graduates and our youngest daughter is currently a senior at Prattville High School. I taught school for eleven years before my children were born, then,  was blessed to be a "stay-at-home" mom for ten years.  I subbed in Autauga County for two years, then returned to teaching full time in Elmore County.  After teaching in Elmore County, I accepted a job at Prattville Junior High, where I taught for two years.  After teaching at Prattville Junior High, I transferred to Daniel Pratt, where I've been teaching for four years now. This is my fourth year to be the fourth grade resource teacher and I love it!
