Bio
I graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina in 2006 with a BA in Education. In 2007, I married my husband and became an Air Force spouse. We have moved 8 times and have three children- all of whom attend Daniel Pratt. I have taught a range of grades and subjects in North Carolina, Maryland, New Mexico, and Alabama. I have been at Daniel Pratt for over a year. We absolutely love Prattville!
