I am a native of Prattville.  I am a proud product of the Autauga County School System.  This is my 23rd year of teaching First Grade at Daniel Pratt Elementary.  I believe that teaching is a calling.  Only those who dare to make a difference should pursue it.  I am a firm believer that all children can learn.  My goal in my teaching career has been to produce life-long learners.  When I am not teaching, I love to sing and travel.
I believe that teaching comes with its own set of special rewards.  However, it's wonderful to be recognized for your hard work and dedication.   I was awarded the Teacher of the Week honor by a local radio station in 1999.  I was also awarded the WAKA Golden Apple Award in the spring of 2008.  I later went on to become the 2nd runner up of the WAKA Golden Apple Teacher of the Year award.  In 2010, I was honored as the Autauga County Reading Teacher of the Year by the Autauga County Reading Council.  In 2017, I was honored to receive the 2017 Educator of Character Luminary Award from the Character Coalition.  I hope to continue making a difference in the lives of children for many years to come. 

Happy February!!
